PLEASANTON -- Downtown visitors will have the option Saturday of joining community members in a "cash mob" at a local business.
A "cash mob" is where local residents get together and all go to a selected store to shop and get to know the business owner and employees.
The business that shoppers will visit Saturday will be selected from a random drawing.
Anyone interested in participating should meet Pleasanton Downtown Association staff members in front of the Museum on Main, 603 Main St. at 6 p.m.
Those who do participate are asked to spend at least $20 at the selected business.
The cash mob will take place during the association's Sizzling Saturday. Downtown businesses will be open until 9 p.m. and numerous businesses and restaurants will offer specials or discounts during 6—9 p.m.
For more information, visit the association's Facebook page or call 925-484-2199.
