For the first time in Groupon history, the (DWA) will offer a town-wide deal for 78 businesses, services, restaurants, shops and other local experiences located within downtown Wheaton Monday.
Shoppers who buy the Groupon will pay $10 for $20 toward any purchase in participating downtown businesses.
DWA Manager Max Williams said, “We are thrilled to be the first community in the U.S. to offer a Groupon for our entire downtown area. We believe this Groupon is a great opportunity to promote the Wheaton area as a desirable destination and show Chicagoland residents that our historic downtown area is ‘so much more than charming’, especially, during a time of the year when small businesses are competing with big box retailers for holiday shoppers.”
Opening its first store in 1850, Downtown Wheaton has a long history as a base for the community’s social scene and commerce activity.
Almost 800 people have bought this Groupon, which expires January 31, 2012.
“By offering this Groupon, we want to encourage local area residents to support local businesses and discover all that Downtown Wheaton has to offer,” Williams said.
