Cash Mob at Value Drugs [VIDEO]

Huntington Chamber of Commerce sponsors first Cash Mob event in Huntington.

To help stimulate the local economy, the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce staged its first "Cash Mob" in Huntington Thursday.

In an effort to stimulate the local economy by promoting the COC's shop locally intitiative, word was spread to businesses and residents. They made their way to Value Drugs on New York Avenue this week for discounted merchandise, networking and refreshments.

Turnout was heavy and the atmosphere was party-like for this soon-to-be monthly event.

Great idea now that I know what it is. In my humble opinion, the new Family Game Center in Huntington Station would be a good candidate for a Cash Mob. http://huntington.patch.com/articles/video-new-family-game-center-in-huntington-station#video-8895734 Every week there are posters on the Patch who complain that nothing is done to improve Huntington Station. Here's a guy who put his money up to start a business and needs local support to make it a success. Remember, neighborhoods change one business at a time.
