Cash Mob for Downtown Frederick

In celebration of Independent Retailers Month, the Downtown Frederick Partnership is planning a first ever Cash Mob for Downtown Frederick.

A “cash mob” is where a community selects one location (an independent retailer) to mob. The group arrives at the appointed date and time to spend $20 cash in support of the local economy. Once the spending is complete, the participants adjourn to a local watering hole to celebrate their support of independent businesses.

In Frederick, the Partnership is holding a Cash Mob on July 25 from 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Many local merchants were interested in hosting. A committee narrowed the options down to three, and now it’s up to the residents to decide. These business are entered into a Facebook survey on the Partnership page where the general public will pick the final location.

Visit the Partnership’s Facebook page to see who the merchants are and to vote until 8am on Monday, July 23 then join the mob on the Wednesday, July 25!


The survey results are in and winner is the Frederick Basket Company with a total of 331 votes. Thanks to our runners up – The Trail House with 293 votes and Ec’clectibles with 117 votes.

Join the mob on July 25th at the Frederick Basket Company – 12 N East St. Bring $20 and a friend and get ready for fun!

Post mob celebration at Shab Row Bistro with drink specials – 221 B N East Street.
