Cash mob formed to save Lakewood art gallery

LAKEWOOD, OH (WOIO) -

A "cash mob" is being formed in hopes of keeping a Lakewood art gallery from closing its doors.

Local Girl Gallery, 16106 Detroit Ave., plans to close at the end of the month. Artists, friends and customers plan to assemble a cash mob on Sept. 22 to raise money for the gallery and keep it open.

"Fans of the gallery were alarmed when owner Linda Goik announced earlier this month that the gallery would be closing by end of September," said co-organizer Jeanine Gergel in an email.
