To celebrate ten years of promoting entrepreneurship, the Oak Harbor DECA chapter created a special activity to show support and appreciation of local entrepreneurs. The first cash mob was started in February at the Mill Street Brew in the village of Oak Harbor. Ten businesses will be selected by DECA members for weekly cash mobs.
What is a Cash Mob? A cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business to make purchases. The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community. Last Friday the cash mob was held at the Sugar and Spice Bakery, formerly Sweet Treats, now under new ownership.
