The Crookston Cash Mob held on March 28 at This Is Sew Broadway resulted in a $500 cash prize won by Laurain Jurchen of Crookston. This was the fifth Cash Mob held in Crookston and is sponsored by the Crookston Retail Merchants Association.
“It is so important that community members make an effort to shop locally. When our paychecks are spent in town, it benefits the entire community," Chamber President/CEO Shannon Stassen said. "The Cash Mob is one way to show that it pays to shop in Crookston.”
The next Cash Mob prize will be $100 at a location yet to be determined.
