WASHINGTON-March 8, 2010- Today The Washington Post launches “The Capitol Deal,” a free daily newsletter and site featuring discounts up to 75% off to restaurants, fashion, entertainment, health and wellness and other businesses in the D.C. area. Regional travel destinations will also be featured periodically.
The Capitol Deal expands upon The Capitol Dish, the newsletter launched from The Post in October offering deals to unique Washington-area restaurants.
“Since launching The Capitol Dish in mid-October, our subscribers have increased significantly each month. It made sense to build upon a successful product, and we’re excited to share something that offers readers even more of what The Capitol Dish represents: great deals from D.C.-area businesses,” said Tim Condon, Director of New Digital Ventures at The Washington Post.
The Capitol Deal also features home service deals and discounts from Service Alley, The Post‘s free online marketplace of D.C. area home service providers. Visit TheCapitolDeal.com and find the same great deals on maid services, bathroom remodeling, window installations and more that are available at ServiceAlley.com.
Over the next few weeks, subscribers to The Capitol Deal can expect to see great offers from businesses such as Urban Chic, the contemporary clothing boutique in Georgetown and Bethesda, Fit3, Mattress Warehouse, Vocelli Pizza and Denude Day Spa.
On March 12, The Capitol Deal is presenting the Mid-City Shop & Save Showcase as part of its re-launch celebration. The event is open to the public and features deals from the following stores just off U and 14th Streets, NW: Urban Essentials, Toucan Boutique, Rue 14, Pulp, Caramel, Dr K’s Vintage, Redeem, Miss Pixie’s Home Furnishings, Junction Vintage, Lettie Gooch, Sukio Design, Hilda’s Gift Shop, Habitat Live & Wear and Passport Clothing.
