Denver - 9NEWS today announced the launch of DealChicken Denver, a unique daily deals site, as part of a larger rollout by Gannett Co., Inc, (NYSE: GCI), 9NEWS' parent company, to more than 50 markets across the U.S. by the end of 2011.
More than just another daily deal site, DealChicken Denver merchants will benefit from 9NEWS' long-established presence in Colorado. 9NEWS' deep local connections to, and understanding of, the Front Range community will help DealChicken effectively serve both merchants and consumers and build long-term relationships that last beyond a single daily deal.
In fact, DealChicken has already been highly successful in building brand awareness and delivering a loyal following of repeat customers for local merchants in Phoenix, where the service launched in September 2010. Additionally, merchants have the opportunity to promote their local deal and business through television and online advertising with 9NEWS.
"As a part of the Denver community for nearly 60 years, 9NEWS is committed to the long-term growth and success of the merchants we do business with," said DealChicken Denver Area Manager Jamie Murray. "DealChicken Denver provides another way to promote our great local businesses and all they have to offer with consumers. Our representatives understand the neighborhoods and blocks where Front Range consumers live, work and shop better than anyone else. Deals are specially selected for Coloradans by Coloradans to deliver unique deals and experiences that help them discover the very best of our city from local restaurants to local adventure tours and getaways."
Consumers can sign up now to receive future DealChicken Denver daily deals by visiting DealChicken Denver.com. Local merchants interested in partnering with DealChicken Denver on daily deals should also visit the web site. Merchants determine how many people must agree to purchase the deal in order for it to "hatch." Revenue is shared between the merchant and DealChicken.
