Groupon announces decision to withdraw from local market
e-commerce site Groupon announced yesterday it was ceasing activity in Greece. The business, which operates by offering buyers discounts on a range of services that include restaurants and gyms through purchased coupons, said it took the decision after making a detailed study of the Greek market. The US-based company started operating in Greece around five years ago. Greece’s uncertain economic and political climate appear to be the driving factors behind the company’s withdrawal from the Greek market. Contact details have been made available on the company’s Greek website for concerned customers.
