New cash mob destination: Crowder Bros. Ace Hardware

A cab mob has hit another hardware store — this time Crowder Bros. Ace Hardware in Lakeland, Fla., according to an article in The Ledger. The hardware store had been hurting from the weak economy. 

About 300 people descended on the store between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. Store manager Scott Yarbrough said the store doubled what it normally sells on a Saturday.

The organizer, Chrissanne Long, said the event has created an online community of local business owners and supportive people, according to the article.
