Local deals.woot! Why doesn't this exist?
I feel a site like deals.Woot! would find a good market segment helping local small businesses (like mine) help promote their own really great deals on a regional or metropolitan basis. Shipping absolutely kills the great value I can offer a customer due to its labor intensive nature and high cost...it's not like I have a department dedicated to that, I'm every department! Additionally, it would help build lasting relationships with customers in terms of service work, which I can provide at a fraction of big-box stores. Exposure, however, costs a king's ransom to get...which is where I envision a site like Woot! coming in. Thoughts?
