Knox County is planning another Knox Cash Mob, and this time, two South Knoxville businesses will benefit.
The cash mob is meant to drive people to spend money at local businesses, particularly those affected by the Henley Bridge closure.
"After a very successful cash mob at Emery's 5 & 10, I am happy to announce that the second cash mob will benefit two businesses: the Disc Exchange and Wee Care Shoppe on Chapman Highway," Mayor Burchett said. "The Disc Exchange and Wee Care are two great local businesses, and I hope everyone will come out to support them this Friday from 5 to 7 p.m."
The two businesses are next door to each other, with the Disc Exchange located at 2615 Chapman Highway and Wee Care Shoppe located at 2537 Chapman Highway.
In addition to new and used CDs, the Disc Exchange also carries vinyl records, DVDs, apparel, collectibles and many other items.
Wee Care Shoppe is a children's consignment shop that offers children's clothes, toys and other items that young families need.
Area businesses are invited and encouraged to take part in the Knox Cash Mob by sending employees to Friday's event to distribute information about their respective businesses.
Shoney Bear, the mascot for the locally-owned Shoney's Family Restaurant franchise, will be on hand to greet children and hand out coupons. In addition, two locally owned and operated food truck vendors will also be a part of the event.
