Having declared that Lockport was sufficiently yarn bombed, local businesswoman Ellen Martin announced her latest project for Lockport: Saturday Cash Mobs.

"The idea of a Cash Mob is not original. The idea of a Cash Mob in Lockport is not original. But good ideas are worth repeating," Martin posted on her new Facebook Downtown Lockport Cash Mob Page. "So saddle up and get ready to support local small businesses. Have a little fun and spend $20 to treat yourself to something in downtown Lockport. February 1, 8, 15 and 22."

According to the Facebook page, "If 1,500 people came to Downtown Lockport and each person spent $20, you would have a boost to your community to the tune of $30,000. This is an opportunity to make a difference to the small businesses that you know and also is a great time to try something new. A glass of wine? Some flowers? A great cup of coffee? Baked goods? Lunch? Dinner? An elusive piece of hardware? A Lockport Tshirt? A haircut? The possibilities are endless. Come and re-discover Downtown Lockport."

As of 7 p.m. only 39 people had liked the Facebook page, but that number is sure to increase significantly before Saturday's kickoff, the page having just been created on Sunday.
