In early January, an accidental fire in a neighboring business caused The Happy Cook to close their store for 26 days. Twenty-six days. Ask any retailer what that kind of unplanned closure would mean to their bottom line.
The store re-opened after extensive repairs on February 2, and Ca$hMob Charlottesville wants to welcome them back with open arms… and hearts:
Your Ca$hMob mission: Stop in anytime during the week of February 11 thru 16, make a purchase, and welcome them back.
We’re working on something special for Saturday, February 16 — still working on the details — but we’re hoping that the next six days will bring a string of well-wishers and happy shoppers to the store to help boost their spirits (as well as their bottom line!)
About The Happy Cook:
The store opened in 1978, and current husband and wife owners Monique and Steve have poured their heart and soul into the store, and on any given day, you’ll likely see three generations of this happy-cookin’ family minding the shop.
Tomorrow, October 13th, come out to support Cash Mob #7!
This time, we’re hitting the GYM to support The Charlottesville Cardinals, a nationally ranked member of the National Wheelchair Basketball Association.
Previously, Cash Mob has focused on small businesses and partnered with a non-profit organization on each event. This time, the target will BE the non-profit: The Independence Resource Center, which sponsors the Cardinals.
Live music, discounts, samples and demonstrations for all the great local businesses located in McIntire Plaza — and one business will be mobbed! Stay tuned or show up Saturday to find out which business is getting a local-lovin’ boost from our cash-filled wallets!
Many thanks to the staff at Woodard Properties for their help in organizing this event with all the great businesses in McIntire Plaza!
Look what this construction project has done to this convenience store parking lot. Not very convenient, eh?
Come join us on Saturday, May 26th when we mob all FIVE businesses at the JPA bridge construction: Wayside Barber Shop, Hoo’s Brew, JPA Fast Mart, Durty Nelly’s/Wayside Deli, and Wayside Takeout & Catering.
