Deals website being launched by Dundee publisher

THE Dundee-based newspaper, magazine and comics publisher, DC Thomson, is making its first foray into the online deals industry.

From tomorrow, will be offering discounts on a range of products and services, including restaurants and hotels, beauty treatments, car MOT’s, local entertainment and theatre.

Says DC Thomson: “Operating in conjunction with social media sites as well as the company’s own titles – The Courier, Evening Telegraph and The Sunday Post – the website will target over a quarter of a million customers in Tayside and Fife.”

In a statement, head of commercial, Mark Hopkins, is quoted, as saying: “Tomorrow sees the launch of our fantastic new website. Our sales team have been scouring Dundee, Perth and Fife to dig out some great bargains, saving our customers money on local goods and services.

“There’s no charge for this amazing new site, unless our customers decide to purchase one of our deal-crunching vouchers. We urge everyone to take a look and sign up for our regular emails to enjoy some fantastic offers.”

Adds the publisher: “This exciting digital development demonstrates DC Thomson’s continued investment across multi-media platforms. It comes after the redesign of the company’s Dundee and Aberdeen-based newspapers, and follows the launch of several magazine titles in digital format on the Apple Newsstand.”
