PC Mall Opens Daily Deals Site

Torrance-based PC Mall, the IT solutions provider and catalog retailer, said today that it has officially opened up its OnSale daily deals business. The firm had said in May that it would be converting OnSale into an online daily deals site. PC Mall said the new site is rolling out a beta in Chicago, Los Angels, and Seattle, offering off discounts on national brands, local restaurants, spa and salon services, and more. OnSale had previously been an electronics shopping site. PC Mall said that its focus with OnSale is helping provide long term profitability and satisfaction to its merchant partners. The issues of profitability and merchant-friendliness has been an oft-repeated issue with market leaders Groupon and LivingSocial.
