Dealfind to turn Oakville into Deal City

Canadian-based group-buying company to offer residents deals from local merchants

TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2011 /CNW/ - Oakville consumers with a penchant for supporting local business will now have a new means of finding the best deals from city merchants with the introduction of Canadian-based group-buying giant Dealfind.

Dealfind's entrance into the Oakville market will not only benefit consumers by offering great deals, it will also give merchants in the city a different way of attracting new customers by giving them access to an entirely new marketing tool.

Dealfind offers merchants the opportunity to sell their products and services at one time promotional prices to local consumers through an online portal without any upfront costs. The result is a stream of new customers.

"Dealfind facilitates a mutually beneficial relationship between merchants and customers by giving the former a chance to get more traffic through their doors and the latter a chance to get a significant discount on high-quality, local products and services," said Dealfind President Gary Lipovetsky.

Dealfind has already saved consumers across Canada more than $279,505,057 and sold more than 1,236,058 vouchers for its varied merchants.  Lipovetsky says many merchants prefer Dealfind because it is far more cost-effective than ads in mainstream and local media.

"Many small businesses don't have the resources to produce a television commercial and pay to have it advertised on a TV network or to place a recurring ad in a newspaper," he said. "Dealfind allows them to have great exposure to their target markets with no upfront investment and pay only if the new customers come in — it's a win-win proposition to both customers and merchants."

The company attributes much of its success to its strong focus on customer service — a key differentiator in an industry where few companies choose to have a devoted customer service staff to address the needs of consumers and offer full refunds.

"We know the future of our business is linked to our reputation among merchants and consumers, so we go the extra mile — even if it means taking a loss — to make sure everyone who does business with us walks away satisfied," said Lipovetsky.

Following a period of rapid expansion, Oakville is another in a series of new mid-sized North American markets Dealfind has entered since the spring.   New markets in Canada include Saskatoon, Regina, Sudbury, Abbotsford, Kelowna, Quebec City and St. John's, while new U.S. cities consist of Miami, Baltimore and San Diego.
