Go Groopie Aims to Corner UK Market in Ethical Social Buying

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Research shows that one third of people who made New Year's resolutions will have broken them by the end of January. As we march towards Spring, new social-buying platform, GoGroopie.com, launches with the aim of making self-improvement fun, social and simple – all year round.

With communication easier than ever before, more and more people are looking for new ways to improve themselves. Maybe you're interested in meeting new friends by taking a local zumba class, want advice from the best health and beauty specialists, searching for great organic restaurants or want to learn a new language, skill or instrument in 2011. What ever your preference Go Groopie will help by offering great discounts on the best local opportunities to help you learn, look and feel better, all while connecting local people together.

Jonathan Mackey, co-founder of Go Groopie explains their ethos:

"Social commerce sites have exploded in the last 18 months, with big hitters like Groupon changing the way we buy, share and socialise. Our focus on self-improvement and ethical promotions are more relevant to people like us and our friends, as well as the wider communities and the places we live. But we aspire to be more than just another daily deal site – we want to encourage our members to have fun when buying from Go Groopie."

Edwin Wong, the enterprise's other co-founder added,

"Amidst a VAT increase and soaring inflation, belt-tightening has become the norm so far this year. We aim to promote good living offers that won't break the budget, but may break bad habits. We all want to feel better - and do better for our environments and communities - without bearing huge personal costs. Hopefully this is where we can add value in this burgeoning space to our users, merchants and the wider community as a whole."

www.gogroopie.com launches in late March as a website, on Facebook and Twitter.
