Did you know that…

For every $100 spent on a locally-owned and indpendent business, $68 goes back in local economic activity. When you spend $100 in a national chain, only $43 goes back and buying from an out-of-state online seller who do not collect sales tax is virtually a total drain on the local economy.

Join us to cash mob a locally-owned and independent business in Alameda on Sunday 5/20 at 4:00 and spend your hard-earned dollars in the East Bay. When you shift local, you help enrich the East Bay! If you have not RSVP’d yet on our Cash Mob Alameda event, please do so and help spread the word.


To our friends across the bay, definitely check out SFLOMA and their directory to find local businesses and shift local in the beautiful city of San Francisco!
