NEW YORK, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Gilt City (www.giltcity.com) officially launches today in New York, Boston, Chicago, Miami, San Francisco and Los Angeles -- providing members unique access to each city's best services at top destinations including restaurants, spas, entertainment venues, museums and more.
A subsidiary of Gilt Groupe Inc., Gilt City's curators in each local market select one-of-a-kind experiences that are then offered online in a limited quantity to Gilt City members. Gilt City and Gilt Groupe members have online access to these carefully selected lifestyle experiences in all six markets at exclusive prices up to 80% off.
"The opportunity to extend the proven Gilt model of combining coveted products and exclusive prices is a natural fit for the world's leading cities," said Nate Richardson, President of Gilt City. "We're starting in local markets where the Gilt brand is already established and in the near-term we anticipate expanding to markets that match the Gilt experiential model."
"This is a natural next step for Gilt Groupe, from providing our members with sought-after designer and lifestyle products to offering opportunities to get the most out of their local communities -- all at the great values we are known for," said Susan Lyne, CEO of Gilt Groupe.
Each week, Gilt City delivers three or more sales in every market at varying times depending on the market. The sales remain online for seven days, or until the limited supply runs out (whichever occurs first).
Gilt City's launch sales include a national promotion with Pinkberry, a Gilt City concert in Los Angeles with Bruno Mars, Bumble & Bumble salon discounts in New York, VIP Dreamgirls theater tickets in San Francisco, paddleboard tour and day pass for the Standard Hotel in Miami, dining at UpStairs on the Square in Boston, a season pass for Chicago Bulls games at Market Sports Bar in Chicago and more.
