Yes I would attend another. I think this thing could grow, especially if more Main St. establishments offered some form of incentive for that day and a list of the offers was handed out to the "mobbers" before shopping. And, of course, more publicity needs to be done.

YES I would attend a 'mob' anything! (Wait, that doesn't sound right..lol). But yes, I would absolutely attend another cash mob shopping event! I visualize signs in merchant windows advertising specials just for 'mobbers'. This way, people's interest will peak wondering who or what a mobber is.
