FORT LAUDERDALE (CBS4) – There’s a new way to save on things sold right here in South Florida.
CBS4 found a local company that has come up with a website offering reviews from regular people and combines it with cost cutting deals.
The goal of Shooger.com is to help businesses reach clients that are more local. The site pairs consumers with deals of up to 90 percent off. The service is free.
“We realize the power is in the consumer. We hear about the deals they love and places they love and we can go find those businesses and say, hey, these people want a deal from you and we are going to help them,” said Francesca Watson, a representative of Shooger, to CBS4’s Jorge Estevez.
Shooger works with local businesses to come up with discounts, but unlike other daily deal websites, these deals are good for weeks.
“Not just one time where they come in and get a deal and never hear about them again. These deals help connect with them and stay connected with them,” said Watson.
Shooger also advertises participating businesses on their websites with animated commercials for the Rickenbacker Fish Company, La Epoca- clothing store, the Downtown Athletic Club and Oye Cuban Grill.
