E-commerce site Groupon pulls out of Greece


Global e-commerce site Groupon announced on Monday it was ceasing activity in Greece.

The business, which operates by offering buyers discounts through purchased coupons, said it took the decision after making a detailed study of the Greek market.

The US-based company started operating in Greece around five years ago.

Greece’s uncertain economic and political climate appear to be the driving factors behind the company’s withdrawal from the Greek market.

Contact details have been made available on the company’s Greek website for concerned customers and businesses.
