Website offers price comparisons

A new website has been launched to help customers compare prices, services, special offers and promotions.

Bermudacompare.com provides an independent single-source of publicly available information enabling shoppers to find the best deal locally.

It comes at a time when the economy and personal incomes are under severe strain, as consumers are becoming more and more concerned about how and where to spend their hard-earned cash and maximise their purchasing power.

The website also provides a special offers section, listing a range of deals and promotions from local vendors, including health and leisure, food and drink, retail and automotive products and services, while subscribers have the opportunity to sign up for a twice-a-month newsletter, allowing them to receive these offers direct to their inbox according to their personal preferences.

Bermudacompare.com's mail shots are sent out on the first and third Friday of every month.

“The response has been quite good,” said Doug Parker, the website's sales and marketing representative. “Everyone I've talked with has been really positive about it.”

He continued: “There's a lot of room for expansion with this concept. For example, right now the comparison section focuses on retail banking, communications, Internet access, health and leisure activities and automotive information.

“But we've already had local businesses asking us to expand to include a marine section, add in information from hair salons to the health and leisure area, a section based on insurance, and several other really good ideas which we will be implementing in time.”
