Cash Mob Ambridge Brings New Exposure to Local Businesses

On Friday, November 14th, 2014, over 25 people came out to support local, sustainable businesses in Ambridge, PA as part of a “Cash Mob.” In this case, a Cash Mob is a group of people coming together to celebrate with and shop at local businesses that have earned Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Sustainable Small Business Designation. Sustainable businesses implement actions that are simultaneously good for their bottom line, the environment, and the social fabric of their communities.

Ambridge currently boasts the most Gold & Silver Designations of any town in southwestern PA. Many Ambridge business owners reported increased advertising, connections, and exposure as a result of the Cash Mob. Multiple businesses reported over a 25% increase in sales for the day.

Cash Mob Ambridge was made possible by Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Champions for Sustainability program, Ambridge Connection, Town Center Associates and the Ambridge Chamber of Commerce. Of course, this event would not have been possible without the 15 participating businesses. Thanks to everyone who came out to support these Sustainable Small Businesses.

The Ambridge Cash Mob is the third cash mob Sustainable Pittsburgh’s Champions for Sustainability program has hosted. All told, there are 170 establishments that have earned the Sustainable Small Business Designation in 30 communities around the region. Individuals are encouraged to visit them all for their shopping needs!
