Website gives Newry shoppers the best deals

A new business venture recently launched inn Newry has responded to the needs of local businesses by enabling them to be able to showcase their discounts and offers  to customers in the area. Voucher4it gives shoppers access to the best deals in the area through a website offering savings and discounted deals on a range of products and services such as entertainment restaurants and retail outlets. Jim Donnelly, operations manager said: “We are a completely different concept too websites like Groupon. Voucher4it doesn’t inflict any requirement on businesses to discount at a certain level and we don’t take charges or impose any limitations. Voucher4it is more user friendly and attractive for businesses to work with the . Retailers have complete control to change any offer or create a new one. When the needs of a customer are established offers can be modified to suit this.” Mr Donnelly says he believes there is great demand for the  service locally: “Economic conditions mean that most buyers have less disposable income than they ever did and research shows that it is not necessarily the cheapest product or service they want. They want a good deal from a quality retailer which is a strong feature of Newry business. Our philosophy is that if we can simplify the process of finding the bargains locally then people won’t need to go any further afield and will instead spend their money locally thus boosting the local economy and consolidating jobs.” Voucher4it can be accessed from a new iPhone App as Mr Donnelly explained: “The Voucher4it App which is free is available from iTunes and App stores. There are 12 categories and when you choose one the best local deals will be shown. It has geolocation technology so it shows the closest deals first. It also provides directions, a map, options to contact the retailer and you can share it with friends on face book. That social interaction is great for businesses. We have had tremendous reaction from people who use the app. You can print a discount voucher, quote the discount code or simply present the voucher on your phone to avail of the offer. It is very handy and quick which is what customers want. For more information visit www.voucher4it.co.uk
