A cash mob will hit Roseville Saturday.
Nope, that's not an unruly crowd of thugs trying to grab your wallet. It's actually a tactic to support small, local businesses that's gaining steam nationwide.
An announcement goes out over social media, and shoppers descend on a store en masse at a particular time—like a flash mob with spending power.
This local version is hosted by SureWest Communications, the Cash Mob will be held at , 700 Atlantic St. The meat shop has been at the same Roseville location for 65 years. During the Cash Mob, you can sample some of their marinated meat products and be entered to win a $100 gift card.
