Members 1st Cash Mob Debuts

For Immediate Release
12.18.2012

REDDING, Calif.

Members 1st Credit Union announces the debut of the Members 1st Cash Mob, a localized effort to support small business in Shasta and Tehama County. The Members 1st Cash Mob is available to anyone interested in supporting local business through the monthly process of purchasing goods and services.

 The Members 1st Cash Mob brings community members together to storm the doors of a featured local business at a scheduled date and time each month where Mobbers purchase goods and services from the featured local business. Since 2011, Cash Mobs have converged upon mom-and-pop businesses struggling in a downturned economy. Successful Cash Mobs help local businesses thrive, creating a more vibrant and enriched community.

The featured local business is determined through nominations and voting conducted by Cash Mobbers. Nominations are accepted each month on the Members 1st Facebook page at www.facebook.com/members1stcu, whereupon the four most frequently nominated businesses will be voted on to determine the featured local business.

The first featured local business chosen by the Members 1st Cash Mob is the Fallis Around Town food truck and will take place on Wednesday, December 19 at 1380 Hilltop Drive from 11am-2pm. Mobbers purchasing food will receive five dollars off their meal when making purchases with a Members 1st Visa Credit Card or Check Card as a non-PIN transaction.

“Our Cash Mob is unique by being sponsored by our credit union and covering a portion of your purchase” says Josh Markle, Members 1st Credit Union Marketing Director. “This is a great opportunity for us to aid local business in Shasta and Tehama County.”
