MT. VERNON — — The Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce will hold its first "cash mob" of the season from 4 to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Shoe Stop and the Rend Lake College Golf Outlet, both located at 321 Potomac Blvd.

As part of the event, special deals will be offered at the businesses to entice customers. The cash mob is part of the Chamber's newly revamped Shop it Here program, which is sponsored by the Jefferson County Development Corporation and the City of Mt. Vernon. The program seeks to promote the virtues of buying locally.

Organizers hope to hold eight cash mob events this holiday season. Learn more about the program Saturday on this site or in the print edition of the Register-News.
