Members of Full Circle Outlet held a cash mob event on Saturday morning.

A total of 15 of the charity store’s board members and volunteers spent around $20 each at Country Corner, for a total of at least $300.

The concept, held for the first time in Summerland, was inspired by a similar initiative in Powell River, as a way to help small businesses.

Organizers plan to hold other cash mob events every six to eight weeks.
