Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
HomeSav.com, a Toronto-based flash sales website focused on luxury home furnishings and décor that recently secured $1.2 million in venture capital, is launching HomeSav Local in Toronto on October 31. This is the first step in their multi-city HomeSav Local initiative. HomeSav Local aims to connect members with home-related goods and services within their cities at the same compelling discounts that contributed to HomeSav’s initial success.
Unlike traditional daily deals websites that offer a non-targeted array of local goods and services ranging from manicures to muay thai, HomeSav Local will focus specifically on offers related to the home space, a tack that led them to early success as a flash sales website. Concentrating on a niche demand: luxury home décor, furniture, and lifestyle products, grew HomeSav’s subscriber base to over 120,000 members in a matter of months. By offering focused, quality local discounts to a targeted audience, HomeSav intends to enhance the value it brings to its customers. HomeSav Local will provide dramatically reduced prices on services ranging from roofing, carpeting, window treatments, electricians, interior designers and discounts to brand name luxury retailers such as Calphalon kitchenware.
“Our goal is to help our members create homes they love. That means offering not only designer furniture and décor, but connections to reputable, reliable and valuable home-focused retailers and service providers throughout the city,” explains Dustin Koffler, President of HomeSav Local. HomeSav.com is the first Canadian website to focus on home-related daily deals.
HomeSav Local also emphasizes the importance of quality in the offers they provide to their subscribers. “Our team vets each and every business we partner with to ensure that our offers are not only valuable, but reliable, too. We do our due diligence to make sure our members get only the highest-quality products and services,” says Allan Fisch, Founder and Co-CEO. With an experienced team of local retail and home experts, HomeSav is able to hand-select and curate sales and promotions that are relevant and valuable to their members, and the addition of HomeSav Local will allow them to provide a deeper and more comprehensive selection of home solutions. “It is a great way for us at IBSC to connect with a very focused network of home owners and help them to create their ideal living space,” says Stacey Cohen, who is offering an interior design consultation from Interiors by Stacey Cohen at 90% off exclusively for HomeSav Local members.
For home service providers and retail furniture companies, HomeSav Local is a successful platform that provides a marketing channel for reaching a large audience and brings significant additional business. "We are pleased to be associated with a company that offers us access to sophisticated consumers,” says Harry Silverberg, CEO of Dominion Roofing, one of HomeSav Local’s vendor partners.
In addition to Toronto, HomeSav Local aims to expand to multiple cities throughout North America in the coming months.
To promote the launch of HomeSav Local, HomeSav is holding an “Inspired Living Giveaway.” All new members will be entered to win a $100 gift-card to popular home-related retailers including Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Pier 1 Imports and more. Membership is free, and in addition to a giveaway entry, all new members will receive $10 to apply towards their first purchase after signing up at http://www.HomeSav.com/hsl.
In addition to HomeSav Local, HomeSav continues to see success with its Inspired Picks program, an initiative that engages celebrity designers and home experts to curate sales through HomeSav.com with upcoming sales hosted by tastemakers including Chef David Adjey, Lisa Ferguson and Karl Lohnes.
HomeSav.com is Canada’s leading online shopping club (also known as flash sale site) featuring designer home décor, furniture, lifestyle products and home related services at a significant discount to its membership base. HomeSav’s membership has grown by over 1400% in the first year to over 120,000.
