Is this an assumption or do you have some data that would show this to be true?
Sure. Its just one example of many ....
The pier sold 7,500 Groupons for the beginning days of its annual Winter WonderFest, an 283 percent increase from its first venture into discounted sales via Groupon last year.
This raised overall ticket sales by 12 percent. But use of the deal site, plus parking discounts at the pier, brought event revenue to date down 8 percent, to $420,000, pier officials reported Wednesday morning.
