“The addition of the Orange County and Inland LA regions to Groupon LA means better deals for more subscribers”
Groupon launched in Los Angeles in July 2009 and has more than 100,000 subscribers. The creation of the regions allows Groupon users to choose a more geographically relevant area within their city to view as the main feature, with a side window to view deals from surrounding regions in the daily alert. In the Los Angeles market, customers will now enjoy more local deals by viewing the dedicated Orange County or Inland LA pages. Both region pages will also include links to the other area features. Current subscribers who receive Los Angeles as their primary email will not notice a change in service, although primary region preferences can be changed at any time.
“The addition of the Orange County and Inland LA regions to Groupon LA means better deals for more subscribers,” said Groupon founder Andrew Mason. "With unbeatable deals even closer to home and multiple local features, Groupon continues to save people money on the things they love to do.”
During its first week in Orange County, Groupon will feature deals including yoga, go-kart racing and a local hair salon, while Inland LA deals will highlight a winery, extreme fitness training and a sake pairing dinner, among others.
Los Angeles is one of 29 Groupon markets in operation; the company plans to implement regions in its largest cities nationwide throughout 2010. The innovative approach to e-commerce has generated millions in revenue for local businesses while saving two million subscribers more than $63 million.
