maskChamber Mob Squad Off and Running
The Chamber has launched the SACC Mob Squad’s Mini Mob Program
If you have seen it, heard of it or are just not quite sure what it is all about, here is the Who, What, Where, When and How!
WHO? You, or your employees if you are a chamber member! Don’t be afraid to get your employees involved in shopping local and showing it!

WHAT? The mini-mob is a way for biz owners to connect with each other and a way to build community and chamber membership.  It’s a great opportunity to visit a business you have never been to, but have been meaning to stop in and check out.
WHERE? Any business in the Sandy Area (does not have to be a storefront or a Chamber member)
WHEN? Kick off was April 3rd at Good Morning Sandy and it will end June 30th.

HOW? Follow these 3 super-simple, easy steps!

1.    Make sure you have plenty of cards on you. Keep them in your car. (Pick them up at the Chamber office if you need some)

2.    Fill our your name (and you can put a postage stamp on the card, to make it easy for them to return.)

3.    Whenever you visit a business, bring a card. Make sure the person you are handing it to knows what to do with it.

You the mobber and the business the mobbee, will be entered in to a drawing at the end of June.  Prizes include a $100.00 gift card from Fred Meyer for the mobber and a $150.00 gas card for the mobbee, plus the winning business (mobbee) gets a free banner at Music Fair and Feast.

So far, we have had 18 cards returned and out of those 18, 12 different businesses have been mini mobbed by 9 mobbers!
