Oh well. According to the last spin release from Michael “Big Sexy” Grider, my yard sale came in a distant 6th place in the nomination pool for where to hold the next Knox Cash Mob.
Haha. Good one, Grider.
Anyhoo, the county tallied the nominations and now it's time for the community to vote for the next location, which will be in South Knoxville this time around.
Click right smack here to vote for either:
- Colonial Village Shopping Center (Colonial Hardware, Kay's Ice Cream and the Village Bakery)
- Mclemore Florist
- Myrtle's Mess
- Sally's Alley
- Tea & Treasures
Voting runs from 5 p.m. today through 5 p.m. next Wednesday, March 6. The county will announce the winner on Friday, March 8.
Knox County Mayor Tim Buchett said residents often give him suggestions for where to hold these things, so he felt that “this is a good way to get them involved in the selection process.”
Last week, the county took nominations.
“We had a lot of people go online and nominate their favorite South Knox business, which goes to show that our community cares about local business and wants to help,” the mayor said. “That's the goal of cash mobs.”
Despite protestations from Emperor Dean Rice, the mayor went ahead and started holding these events. Dean has since been banned from them. Heh.
