Green Day: Cash Mob Floods Sandy Hook Center With Business –’It was very successful…I think a lot of people came in from out of town.’

31 Jan 2013 From 9 am to 5 pm that day, hundreds of shoppers came to the area to patronize retail businesses, whose commerce had been stunted by the traffic congestion and the lack of parking that clogged the area in the days after 12/14.

It is St. Rose of Lima School, a private school a few miles away, also in Newtown.
