People throughout Curry County, including this group in Gold Beach, descended on Ray’s Food Place stores at 5:30 p.m. Thursday as part of a Cash Mob. The idea was to have a large crowd of people show up and shop at the same time at stores in Brookings, Gold Beach and Port Orford to show their support for the financially-struggling C&K Market Inc., which has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, closed stores and laid off employees. Co-organizer Georgia Nowlin was inspired to do the Cash Mob as a way to support the Brookings-based business that has supported various community schools and non-profits for decades.
