New York, NY (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
mygrocerydeals.com announced today that it posted more than 158,530 individual grocery deals on its free grocery savings comparison site - http://www.mygrocerydeals.com - in the month of December, 2008. "The December deal total was a full ten percent higher than the November total which was the previous all time high," said Paul Davis, CEO and co-founder of mygrocerydeals.com. "We see this as strong evidence that grocery retailers are really reaching out in an effort to bring consumers into their stores."
"Traditional supermarkets are competing with discount grocers for the careful consumer's dollars and even the specialty grocers are offering more regular flyer deals," says Davis. "The research shows that in this economic climate, store-specific deals are a critical factor when consumers decide where they will buy their groceries." Mygrocerydeals.com is seeing not only more deals but also better deals and steeper discounts in the flyers that are captured and organized by the company each week. "The grocery savings benefits to individual members of mygrocerydeals.com are actually growing each month," says John Scott, executive vice-president and co-founder.
Davis and Scott started mygrocerydeals.com in 2004 and the site has grown steadily to more than two hundred and fifty thousand members today. Their original vision was to give consumers an online grocery price comparison engine like the ones that have long been available for books and electronics and shoes. The site has been expanded to include printable on-line coupons for accelerated savings on groceries, as well as full nutritional information and allergen alerts.
