Groupon Announces Pages, a New Way to Connect People with Millions of Local Businesses

Pages provide Groupon users with better information on local options and where they can save the most money

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Today, Groupon (www.groupon.com) announced the launch of more than 7 million new listings for merchants called Pages--making Groupon the first place to go for ratings, tips, money-saving opportunities and other useful information for local businesses in the United States.

For the first time, Groupon is using these millions of new pages as a platform to publish its more than 20 million validated ratings and helpful tips from real customers to highlight the unique aspects of local businesses. In addition, Pages provide merchants with an additional online presence to connect with potential customers and drive more sales in the form of exclusive offers, everyday specials, coupons and other promotions.

"Pages brings millions of additional businesses to the Groupon marketplace and connects them with our large community of mobile users looking for things to do, see or buy," said Eric Lefkofsky, Groupon CEO. "We're giving these merchants their own space on Groupon and new tools to highlight their business and bring new customers through their doors."

"No one knows more about local commerce than Groupon, and we're putting this knowledge to work for merchants and our customers," Lefkofsky added.

Following a successful pilot in Chicago, D.C., New York, San Francisco and Seattle, Pages are now live and more will continue to roll out until nearly every local business in the United States has a presence on Groupon.

Merchants and customers will have access to the following capabilities through Pages:

"Groupon has proven to be instrumental in supporting the growth of Adventura and helping to highlight the epic experience we offer." To view Adventura's page on Groupon, please click here.
