#DDDDay Cash Mob at Douglas & Hydraulic!

Cash Mob 

April 21, 2018

What is the DDD Cash Mob?

A cash mob is a large group of people who meet up at local businesses to spend money and make purchases. The purpose of these is to support local businesses and the overall community. This Saturday’s “Cash Mob for the Douglas Design District” was designed to help the local businesses alongside Douglas Avenue to recover and thrive.

Why Does the Douglas Design District URGENTLY Need Your Help?

Traffic cones and road construction are a necessary evil. They’re a good thing for the city, as it means Wichita is growing!

What they aren’t so good for sometimes is business. If customers can’t park or access a place of business, then they choose to stay away. This can ultimately lead to a huge decline in revenue.

The businesses located at Hydraulic and Douglas have been negatively affected by the road construction over the last several months. The recent overhaul of that intersection left many businesses without any direct parking and meant the March Madness traffic just passed by the block. Combined with the erratic weather of spring, this has left several businesses on the edge of survival. The City of Wichita fixed the streets and now the people of Wichita can band together to help fix the businesses.

Please join us all day on Saturday, April 21st for a full day of eating, shopping, and living local!
