Company Summary

Local Thrifty is a group buying website company. We leverage the advertising and education that big players like Groupon and Living Social are providing to consumers and advertisers in major markets, but differentiate ourselves by focusing our efforts on small to medium size communities with a population of 60,000-150,000. We emphasize keeping local retail and service dollars within the communities they come from.
