MODESTO, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Groupon (http://www.groupon.com), a shopping website that
offers a daily deal on the best local goods, services and cultural events in more than 300 markets around the world,
expands its northern California presence with the recent launches of its Modesto and Napa-Sonoma markets.
“Groupon continues to expand the reach of social commerce,” said Rob Solomon, president and chief operating
officer of Groupon. “We're excited to bring our new California subscribers unbeatable deals from the best
businesses in their cities while creating new streams of revenue for local merchants.”
Using the principles of collective buying, Groupon negotiates unprecedented discounts with popular businesses.
Groupon subscribers get free daily emails alerting them to the deals. The deals are activated only when a minimum
number of people agree to buy, encouraging subscribers to share the promotion with family and friends. By
guaranteeing a large number of new customers, Groupon has created a powerful new marketing vehicle for local
merchants. This innovative approach to e-commerce has brought millions of dollars in new revenue to local
businesses while saving subscribers across North America more than $800 million.
“Groupon brings buyers and sellers together in a fun and collaborative way,” said Solomon. “We offer the consumer
a great deal they can’t get anywhere else and deliver the sales directly to the merchant.”
Modesto and Napa-Sonoma consumers join subscribers in a dozen existing California markets including San
Francisco, San Jose and Sacramento currently enjoying Groupon deals.
