Today, at D9 Conference, Google’s Eric Schmidt and VP of Commerce Stephanie Tilenius announced of launching “Google Offers” beta in Portland, Ore. tomorrow.
Google said “Our first Google Offer will be from beloved local java shop Floyd’s Coffee. Husband-and-wife team Jack Inglis and Cris Chapman opened Floyd’s seven years ago, offering up espresso, coffee, breakfast burritos and more. They now have two convenient locations-one cozy, brick-lined shop in Old Town and another Stumptown watering-hole in Buckman.”
“With Google Offers, we’re working with great local businesses like Floyd’s Coffee, Le Bistro Montage, Powell’s Books and Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade to help them reach more Portlanders. We hope to bring Google Offers to other cities soon, with New York City and the San Francisco Bay area as our next stops,” Google stated.
Finally, if you’re at the Portland Rose Festival this Saturday, you can visit Google booth at CityFair.
