Living Social is going to be trying something different to promote special events, new products, and unique vendors. Today it announced the forthcoming opening of a new physical venue space in the Washington, D.C. area. The space will provide a much needed workspace for classes, social events, exclusive pop-up restaurants, and other unique activities.
The SVP of New Initiatives for LivingSocial, Doug Miller, explains:
“Since its inception, LivingSocial has been successful in creating unique experiences that help our members discover the best of their town,”
“918 F Street will serve as a venue for special experiences where local residents can try the hottest pop-up restaurants, take a yoga or painting class, learn to make sushi or participate in scores of other social activities”.
“In our state-of-the-art facility, local merchants get the resources, space and audience they need to scale their businesses and reach new customers. We believe this is the next step in the evolution of local commerce and complements our existing offerings.”
