Groupon, after a very public ban on firearms related offers, has again decided to offer firearms related deals–aliet on a limited basis. WebProNews reports that Groupon has reconsidered based on market feedback. The quote below relates to a incident where a Colorado shooting range’s coupon was included by accident:
After an expired coupon for a Colorado Shooting Range was included in today’s Groupon email blast for Denver, Red Alert Politics followed up with the company and discovered the change in policy. Today’s coupon was a mistake, but Denver residents might soon see real gun-related deals in their Groupon emails.
“We have decided to reopen certain firearm-related deals in specific markets where they’ve been frequently requested by both merchants and customers,”
Groupon was serious about the limited scope. When pressed for further comment:
After a carefully considered review, we have decided to reopen certain firearm-related deals in specific markets where they’ve been frequently requested by both merchants and customers. These deals are limited to skeet shooting and firing ranges.
I can confirm that firearms related deals are indeed live here in Cincinatti and they are just for firing ranges per the public statement. The screen capture above is within the last 24 hours.
