The CityPockets Team would like to wish you and your family a very happy new year!
But first, some parting words…
2011 has already come and gone. It was a tumultuous but exciting year for daily deals. We saw Groupon go public in November and saw Google Offers join in on the fray in May. We also saw giants such as Facebook deals and BuyWithMe fall. We’ve seen countless more enter and leave the market.
But if anything, 2011 was the year daily deals matured from an Internet fad to become a household name.
Congratulations to Groupon for going public in 2011!
