Cash Mob for the Move tomorrow at St. Mark's Bookshop

[Via Facebook]

In case you didn't see this on Monday at Jeremiah's Vanishing New York... there's another Cash Mob at St. Mark's Bookshop... tomorrow at 3 ... the owners are in the preliminary stages of moving to a smaller space... plus, sales are slow now in the summer doldrums...

The Details:
Date: Saturday, July 21
Time: 3 p.m.
Place: St. Mark's Bookshop, 31 3rd Avenue between 8th and 9th
Goal: Spend money on books! Tell them "Jeremiah sent me" and if you're one of the first 20 people to spend $10, you get a $5 gift certificate for your next visit.
After the Mob: Head over to Bar 82 at 136 2nd Ave., between 8th and 9th, to drink and celebrate with your fellow cash-mobbers.

Meanwhile, in an article in this week's of The Villager, the paper reports that co-owners Terry McCoy and Bob Contant are looking to move to a place 2,000 square feet or less, with a proportionally lower rent to match. (The current space is roughly 2,700 square feet.)

And to move somewhere else in the neighborhood.

Said McCoy: "This store’s whole identity is linked to the East Village. We can't go anywhere else. It's our reason for being."

Looking forward to this. I hope a lot of people show up.
