Supporting Our Neighboring Businesses With A “Cash Mob”

Many of you know that Windermere/Oak Tree is  moving to a new office this summer – to 311 N 85th St. (So excited-waiting-with-baited-breath!!!) We’ve been at 100th & Aurora for nearly 20 years, but this summer, we’ll enjoy a new building and a new neighborhood. Greenwood/Phinney Ridge!

As our way of introducing ourselves to the new neighborhood and exploring new shops, bars and restaurants, we’re selecting a business each week to “Cash Mob”. The general idea of a Cash Mob is to encourage people to go to a small, local business and spend their money en masse – well, throughout the week in our case – to give the business owner a bit of economic stimulus.

We’ve got over 50 agents & staff, hopefully most of them will participate to make a positive impact on small businesses in the community which we’ll soon be working on a daily basis. Maybe we’ll find our new favorite hole-in-the-wall antique shop, restaurant, coffee shop or bar.

Our first “CashMob” business selection is Herkimer Coffee located at 7320 Greenwood Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98103.

Herkimer Coffee roasts their beans on site!

Despite Greenwood Avenue North’s current road construction/repaving phase, I was able to find parking within a ½ block.  Herkimer Coffee does their own roasting on-site, has free wi-fi and very friendly service brewing up tasty lattes with pretty foam, tea, beans, and a good selection of pastries. Ironically, our first “cash Mob” business is a “cash only” business – so next time you have some folding money in your pocket, stop by!

Stay tuned for next week’s “Windermere Cash Mob” and join us. If you decide to stop by one of the local Greenwood-Phinney neighborhood businesses we select, tell them you heard about it from Windermere/Oak Tree – Soon to be Windermere Greenwood!!
