FRIDAY, AUGUST 12TH
Black Market Friday is an initiative to encourage the community to support and shop black owned businesses. This day will be the culmination of a marketing campaign/blitz featuring Black owned businesses from all industries that are registered on the TRBF website. With the assistance of radio and social media we will encourage the community to patronize area Black owned businesses for all of their shopping needs. The day’s events will include multiple cash mobs at 3 selected Black Owned businesses scheduled throughout the day. The goal is to raise awareness and prompt as many people to spend dollars at Black owned businesses by doing what you already do – shop. ON a typical Friday, one may visit the hair salon or barber shop, go to a restaurant with family or friends, get a car wash or even pick up a few items for their closet.
DOUBLE LYNX CARD REWARDS
On Friday, participating Lynx Card locations will offer 2x the discount, so make sure you take advantage of these huge savings!
