PC Mall rolls out registration for daily-deal site nationwide
September 2, 2011 10:29 AM
Electronics retailer PC Mall Inc. has opened nationwide registration for its daily-deal site that offers shoppers national sales on goods and services that go far beyond the hardware and software the e-retailer offers on its business-oriented e-commerce site.
The retailer’s OnSale subsidiary, which in May expanded its online discount shopping site OnSale.com into a daily-deal site, has been testing a version of the regional site. The national rollout follows a regional launch that includes local deals in Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle.
PC Mall says the OnSale expansion can help enable local and national merchants attract new and long-term customers
The retailer says it plans further expansion in North America but did not identify specific locations. “We are excited about the future of OnSale and what it means to merchants, consumers and to PC Mall,” said Frank Khulusi, CEO of PC Mall, No. 52 in the Internet Retailer Top 500 Guide. “OnSale leverages PC Mall's experience in database marketing and our capabilities of developing and executing outbound calling efforts to businesses.”
Shoppers can purchase discounted offers at OnSale.com and redeem a voucher, or OnSale Coupon as PC Mall calls it, at local merchants. OnSale is offering discounts on items ranging from clothing and pet supplies to restaurant and spa services.
Consumers can sign up at OnSale.com to receive the offers through e-mail, Facebook and Twitter. Shoppers also can send the deals to friends and accumulate rewards points when friends make purchases.
