CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In honor of Beauty Week, Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) (http://www.groupon.com) set out to find the most pampered cities in America. To determine the winner, Groupon ranked 150 cities based on how much residents have spent so far this year on pampering Groupon deals, including haircuts and coloring, nails, facials, teeth whitening and tanning. The internal study evaluated cities in those categories on a purchases per subscriber basis. And the “Most Pampered City in America” is: Green Bay, Wisconsin.
Green Bay put up strong results in purchases of nail deals (No. 16) and had stellar performances in hair (No. 2) and facials (No. 1), making it the undisputed champion and “Most Pampered City in America.”
