Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa, 2011/04/15 - CitySlicker.co.za launches in Cape Town: Leveraging the power of group buying to offer exclusive deals on great things to do in Cape Town - Restaurant vouchers, hotel deals, spas and beauty deals.
CitySlicker.co.za uses the power of group buying to provide a daily deal on the best dining and leisure experiences that Cape Town has to offer. Registration is free, and members receive daily emails allowing them to purchase vouchers and enjoy local businesses at 50-90% off. Prior to launch, the website had already seen over 5,000 Capetonians sign up to be a part of its community.
For its launch, CitySlicker featured Voila! Restaurant, a trendy restaurant located in the historic Cape Quarter, and Sunset Decks, a luxurious Bed and Breakfast by Sunset Beach. In a few days, CitySlicker sold 220 lunch specials at R49 for Voila! and 150 one-night getaway packages at R199 for Sunset Decks.
“At CitySlicker, both vendors and members win,” says CitySlicker’s CEO, Olivier Chas. “Members get to try out and support local businesses in Cape Town at great prices, and vendors get an exceptional level of publicity and a guaranteed stream of new customers.”
CitySlicker.co.za partners with businesses and gains access to exclusive offers by guaranteeing a minimum number of customers. Each deal goes through as long as a minimum number of vouchers is purchased, and CitySlicker members spread the word to reach the minimum by using social media and networking tools like Facebook and Twitter.
Founded in December 2010, CitySlicker.co.za is a pioneer in mutually beneficial group buying, where consumers can try new things without emptying their wallets, and businesses can gain vast exposure to new customers within a 24-hour time period. CitySlicker provides consumers with exclusive, member-only discounts by partnering with local businesses in Cape Town. CitySlicker plans to expand to Johannesburg and Durban in the weeks ahead.
