BuyWithMe Gains 'Shopping' Ground, Launching in Two New Markets

BuyWithMe Continues Momentum Into Q4 With Its Official Opening in Chicago and L.A.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 6, 2010) -  BuyWithMe, the premier community-buying website that connects shoppers with the best deals and offers from leading local businesses, today announced its official launch in two major U.S. markets: Chicago and Los Angeles. The announcement follows the company's official launch in Dallas and Austin at the end of September and means that businesses in these two dynamic cities have another means for providing savvy shoppers with engaging deals and offers.

"BuyWithMe is about more than just offering good deals - we are about building long-lasting, trusting relationships with our members and our business partners," said Cheryl Rosner, CEO, BuyWithMe. "Chicago and Los Angeles are very important to us because both are vibrant communities filled with people we care about- passionate shoppers and high-quality local businesses. We are very excited to officially launch in Chicago and L.A. and appreciate all of the love we've received. Beyond this, we're looking forward to many more exciting deals."

Shoppers can enjoy exclusive BuyWithMe deals from some of the most esteemed local businesses in their city. While today marks the official BuyWithMe launch in these two cities, the company has been quietly growing its subscriber and business base, partnering with a number of well-known local businesses to provide outstanding shopping opportunities. In Chicago, BuyWithMe has partnered with Bella Notte, a highly rated Italian restaurant in the West Loop, the high-end salon Reflections of Health, and premier men's grooming club John Allan's.

"Bella Notte's experience with BuyWithMe has been outstanding so far," said Ramon Aguirre, General Manager, Bella Notte. "BuyWithMe's approach is refreshing and helped us attract new, quality customers during their kickoff week in Chicago. We plan to partner with them again in the near future."

"With a new club in Chicago, BuyWithMe made it easy to reach new consumers," Kimberlee Moore, General Manager of John Allan's said. "With attention to detail and a professional manner, BuyWithMe listened to what John Allan's wanted to offer. Their designers put together a display to make our services and offer appealing and clear to the consumer. John Allan's has found a marketing partnership with BuyWithMe that will continue to grow our business."

In Los Angeles, shoppers can join their friends on savings at distinct local businesses such as Seventeenth Street Café and Bakery and Lola's. 

"The Seventeenth Street Café has been a fixture in Santa Monica for more than 20 years now but we wanted to offer something that would help us attract even more new customers," said Lenny Rosenber, Owner/Manager, Seventeenth Street Café & Bakery. "The promotion that we ran with BuyWithMe went great and helped us accomplish that goal. We even had a few locals come back to visit us again because of the offer. BuyWithMe worked with us closely to manage the logistics of the deal and we felt the promotion was a success. We look forward to working with them again."

BuyWithMe takes a dedicated approach toward working with consumers and local businesses in every market offering exclusive seven-day deals on spas, salons, travel, fitness, restaurants and activities, as opposed to 24 hour deals like most other community-buying sites. In each city, BuyWithMe remains committed to the consumers and businesses it partners with. To underscore that point, BuyWithMe this week introduced its Merchant Bill of Rights, making official the provisions that have been an intrinsic part of the company's philosophy.
