Groupon and doomed Hoboken businesses
All is not lost when your Hoboken Groupon is useless!
Hoboken411 received many emails from people who had unused Groupons from Fresh Pommes Frites, which closed up shop recently. We’ve theorized in the past, a company that seems to use these social coupon sites (especially when new), might already be having cash flow issues. Sure it’s possible they either got bamboozled by the slick sales people, or just wanted to “try it out” for giggles – but you never know what’s really going on.
Anyway, they were worried that the money they spent went down the drain.
The good news at least with Groupon (if you take the time to read their FAQ), is that they’ll refund your money if the place goes out of business. See their so-called “good customer service” video below.
