Cash Mob stormed the Ice House

The second edition of Prince Rupert's Cash Mob scene took to Cow Bay on Saturday, assembled to explore another Prince Rupert business and create awareness for local merchants.

The Group first assembled at the Court House lawn in the afternoon and then made their way towards the Ice House Gallery.

Once there, participants roamed the Gallery, making purchases large and small, as part of the Cash Mob experience, those taking part must commit to spending at least 20 dollars while at the venue.

Organized by Community Futures of the Pacific Northwest and the Prince Rupert and District Chamber of Commerce, the initiative designed to increase awareness of local business is proving to be a very popular event. With local residents eager to hear of the next opportunity to take to the streets as part of a commercial battalion

You can learn more about Saturday's event from the Rupert Reigns facebook page.

The Ice House venue was selected by way of nominations held through the last month, the destination a carefully guarded secret right up until the moment the mob took to the streets to head down the Cow Bay hill.

With two successful mobs in the books (the first was at The Argosy ) planning is soon to start for Cash Mob number three.

Keep an eye on the Rupert Reigns facebook page  or twitter feed for details on when they plan to take nominations for the third version of the Cash Mob experience.

The Cash Mob project also hosts their own website for information updates.
