The Fortuna Cash Mob is at it again with a triple play of salons. Today, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Stephanie's Salon next to Hot Brew, Simply Gorgeous next to Garcia's Florist, and Cindy's Styling Center on N Street next to H&R Block will be hosting the small business cash mobs.

Fortuna is using modern methods to fight hard economic times by having a "cash mob" event once a month at a local business. On the last Thursday of the month the Fortuna Cash Mob selects a business to be "cash mobbed" by the community to help promote community support and relationships. shared, "We are not a political or social organization, a corporation, a movement, or meant to be an answer the economic crisis. By and large, those that organize Cash Mobs are simply people trying to make a positive impact on the businesses in their communities and have fun while doing it!"

This Cash Mob is different than others held in Fortuna as it will at the end of normal business hours and at three separate locations.

Red balloons will mark the business locations for those who are on the move and would like to visit and support all three salon locations. All three businesses will have Valentine's Specials, demonstrations, products sales, and service sales.

Fortuna Cash Mob encourages everyone to attend and take up the opportunity to purchase salon products and set up those needed or wanted appointments while sales are in the air and you are out mobbing.

Fortuna Cash Mob hopes to promote local businesses and provide the opportunity to experience and share the "Friendly City" community spirit.
