Transcontinental Media Announces The Mega Catch Group Buying Site

Transcontinental Media is pleased to announce the roll-out of The Mega Catch, a group buying site powered by transcontinentalDealstreet.ca, in Prince Edward Island and in the cities of New Glasgow, Truro and Amherst in Northern Nova Scotia. Based on the group buying model, The Mega Catch offers its subscribers the chance to catch mega deals of at least 50% on selected local products and services. The Mega Catch and its French counterpart La méga prise were first launched by Transcontinental Media in Quebec City and St. John’s back in February.

“The launch of The Mega Catch intends to meet the needs expressed by local advertisers and communities already served by Transcontinental Media,” explains Stéphane Gagné, Vice-President, Local Digital Solutions, Transcontinental Media. “Backed by the success of The Mega Catch in Quebec City and St. John’s, we are proud today to roll-out the brand in other regions of Eastern Canada,” he added.

The Mega Catch uses the group buying model, which brings online buyers together to benefit from huge discounts. Subscribers to The Mega Catch can leverage the power of group buying to get substantial discounts (ranging from 50% – 90%) on local products and services in the following categories: Restaurants, Outings, Sports & Outdoor Activities, Body Care, Fashion & Style, and Discoveries. It’s an attractive opportunity not only for consumers in the regions served, but also for merchants, who gain brand visibility and increased sales volumes.

The Mega Catch is the group buying site of Dealstreet.ca, while La méga prise is powered by Publisac.ca, both owned by Transcontinental Media and already well-established in their communities. The Mega Catch complements Weblocal.ca, which offers integrated marketing solutions to local businesses wanting to optimize on-line visibility. This new initiative testifies to the synergy between the digital properties of Transcontinental Media on the local level.
