KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Residents can begin voting on the next location of Knox County's cash mob.

The top five nominees, listed alphabetically, are:

  • Colonial Village Shopping Center (Colonial Hardware, Kay's Ice Cream and The Village Bakery), 6202 Chapman Highway
  • Mclemore Florist, 106 E Young High Pike
  • Myrtle's Mess, 2618 E Martin Mill Pike
  • Sally's Alley, 8203 Chapman Highway
  • Tea & Treasures, 4104 Martin Mill Pike

Online voting begins Friday at 5 p.m. online at the Knox County website, and will continue until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 6.

The winning business will be announced on Friday, March 8.

"People regularly come up to me with cash mob suggestions, so this is a good way to get them involved in the selection process," said Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett. "We had a lot of people go online and nominate their favorite South Knox businesses, which goes to show that our community cares about local business and wants to help. That's the goal of cash mobs."

Mayor Burchett started organizing Knox Cash Mobs early last year in an effort to help businesses in South Knoxville affected by the Henley Street Bridge closure.
