New Berlin, WI (PRWEB) November 19, 2010
Monday, November 22, is the first day that value shoppers in Milwaukee can find a new deal online, offered by a local company who knows the area and its residents. Deals by Golly!, a sister company of Liturgical Publications Inc, will begin offering its first deal Monday. Milwaukeeans can go to DealsByGolly.com and find a new offer from a local business for up to 70–90% off the regular price. The first deal is for a pizza at Rosati’s Pizza, a local business serving Menomonee Falls and the surrounding area. Don’t live in Menomonee Falls? Hungry residents may find it worth their while to make the trip, because the deal is for an extra large pizza for $6 (regularly priced $16.99). And to sweeten the deal, Deals by Golly! is offering a special discount to their Facebook fans—when they enter the coupon code “oops” and they’ll get the pizza for only a dollar.
“We’ve been helping local businesses connect with their community for over 35 years,” said Paul Knaapen, president and CEO of Liturgical Publications Inc and its new sister company, Deals by Golly! “There are a number of online deal Web sites out there, but Deals by Golly! is different because we already know the local businesses, the local market, and the local community. We’re from here; we know how much Milwaukee appreciates a great deal. And while we have plans to expand to other markets where we also know the community and do business, we knew Milwaukee was the best place to start because they are such savvy deal shoppers.”
And Knaapen is right. According to to a recent study by Scarborough Research, Milwaukee is the deal-seeking community—40% of Milwaukeeans use coupons for their grocery shopping, the highest percentage in the country.
Deals by Golly! has been out there building a list of followers for the past two months. Using church bulletin advertisements, Facebook, Twitter, and good old-fashioned word of mouth they have already built a fan base eager to see the deals start. In addition to starting their deals this week, they are celebrating their launch with a party for their fans at Trinity Three Irish Pub in Milwaukee from 5:00–8:00 PM on December 2. Local native and author of the New York Times best-selling book, NETWORKING IS A CONTACT SPORT, Joe Sweeney will share his networking secrets with the crowd, learned from working with some of Wisconsin’s greatest sports figures including LeRoy Butler and Bob Uecker, to name a few.
“Joe is the perfect speaker for our launch,” Knaapen said, “Deals by Golly! is all about networking, creating a network of deal shoppers and giving local business access to that network. As Joe says in his book, to make a connection you have to start by giving, which is what the businesses do, give a phenomenal deal to create new relationships.”
