    Glad to see Groupon expanding into different markets. Just one question Groupon…WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO OFFER LOCAL DEALS CLOSER TO HOME?

    You see, I thought for a long time I was missing the Groupon boat because I live too far away from town. But after doing a little research, I found a site that gathers all the daily NATIONAL Groupon deals available to buy, regardless of where you live.

    Now I can get an exhausted list of national deals that I can buy. Now I just hope one day Groupon will venture off into my little community.
