The local e-commerce space is still relatively young with only a handful of key players—including LivingSocial. With Ebay veteran Gautam Thakar taking the reins in late 2014, the company is quickly moving away from its brick and mortar roots to a more personalized marketplace where customers are investing in their own user experiences.
LivingSocial is an innovative, web-based marketplace, offering amazing deals—from weekend trips to gourmet dinners to one-of-a-kind events. Working with local businesses to bring them new, enthusiastic customers, LivingSocial fosters community partnerships that translate into great deals. Through its online marketplace, members are able to create amazing memories in their own cities—and around the world—at uniquely low prices.
