BuyWithMe has acquired Scoop St., a social commerce company focused exclusively on New York City. BuyWithMe has already acquired LocalTwist, DealADayOnline, Groop Swoop and Edhance this year. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Scoop St. was founded in 2009 and has grown organically as one of the pioneers of the group buying space. Since its inception, Scoop St. has developed deep relationships with local merchants across New York City and has introduced a number of product innovations for merchants and consumers, including unique events called Experiences and a membership loyalty program called Perks.
“As the leading merchant-centric daily deal site, BuyWithMe’s focus on creating long-term success for merchants aligns perfectly with the mission of Scoop St. since its founding two years ago,” said Jim Crowley, CEO of BuyWithMe, Inc.
