Winters can be hard on local businesses, especially those who stay open year round to serve locals on an Island. That's why a group is forming a Bar Harbor Cash Mob!

A cash mob is a group of people that assemble at a local business to make purchases at a set date and time. The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community.

The first recipient of the Bar Harbor Cash Mob has been selected! Information will be sent out to the Cash Mob next week! If you want to be a member of the Bar Harbor Cash Mob, click HERE to join the Facebook group!
