Shirk’s Homemade Candies will be the site of a Cash Mob this evening (September 27), an event organized by Downtown Marion and the Marion Young Professionals to help residents become more familiar with local businesses. Typically, participants meet at a designated location from about 5:15-5:30 p.m. and then go to a target business, where they are asked to spend at least 10-bucks; and if they don’t find anything they like on that given night, they can buy a gift certificate to get something later or to give away. Sometimes the exact store is kept as a surprise until the meeting, but it’s being disclosed early this time to enable folks to make the necessary travel arrangements. Shirk’s Homemade Candies is located 1235 South Prospect Street, which is on State Route-4 south near Barks Road. Typically, Cash Mob participants spend about 30-minutes at the store and then head to an after party. The after party this time is to be held at O’Michaels Fish N Chips at 1116 Mount Vernon Avenue.
