Coming Soon to a Facebook Newsfeed Near You: ‘Cash Mobs’
Metuchen, NJ – Karen McNamara jumps at any excuse to shop.
So when her neighbor organized an event via Facebook challenging people to spend around $20 in a downtown Metuchen gift shop, McNamara was one of the first to show up. She spent $26.
“I just like to support the businesses in Metuchen,” said the 40-year-old borough resident as she walked out of The Brass Lantern last week with her mom and a bag full of goodies. “I’d like to see more of (the events), and just keep our town alive.”
