Fareway Selected For Food Cash Mob

(Le Mars) -- "It's Fareway" that's what Le Mars Mayor Dick Kirchoff told a group of 35 people standing outside the Le Mars Chamber offices awaiting word on which downtown food business would be selected for the third "Cash Mob".  The group then either walked, or drove their vehicles to the downtown supermarket store to pick up a few items.  Each participant was asked to spend at least $20 at the desginated food business.  Dr. Mark Stelzer, and his wife, Kathy paricipated in the third cash mob and purchased some of Fareway's tender quality steaks. 
"We're going to do some grilling tonight," commented Stelzer.  Others went to the produce area and started selecting melons, fruits, and vegetables.  Still other participants selected frozen foods and some went for the bakery items.  Fareway officials seemed pleased that their store was selected for the third cash mob.  At one time, Fareway manager Dave Shaver called for all available grocery employees to assist with the checking and bagging duties.
