Virtual Shopping Mall of City-centric Discounts Now Available on Facebook
Knoxville, Tenn. – October 26, 2010 – As consumers continue to seek a shopping experience more integrated with their favorite social networks, social shopping proceeds to gain significant traction. With that, Half Off Depot today announced the launch of its official Facebook application.
Currently available in more than half of Half Off Depot’s 30+ markets, Half Off Depot’s Facebook app features a virtual shopping mall of city-centric discounts. Deal seekers can now browse discounts from 50-90 percent off at shops, restaurants, bars, attractions and events in their respective cities, without ever having to leave Facebook.
“Consumers demand convenience, and because Facebook currently has more than 500 million users — 50 percent of which log in daily — it made sense for us to continue to grow the Half Off Depot brand in that direction,” said Patrick Best, president of Half Off Depot.
While Half Off Depot intends to launch a Facebook app in all cities it serves in the coming months, the official Half Off Depot app is currently available in the following markets:
To use the app, consumers should visit their city’s respective Facebook page and click the “Shop Now” tab.
