Parkbench.com expands into British Columbia
By Adnews Staff
Toronto-based Parkbench.com has expanded into British Columbia. The website specializes in providing neighbourhood-level localized information, such as news, event listing and special offers. The site was previously limited to coverage of the Greater Toronto Area. The new expansion covers 250 communities in Greater Vancouver. The company plans to expand further to Calgary and Edmonton next year.
"We call Parkbench a neighbourhood network because we use all the content about a neighbourhood to connect the people and businesses within it," said Parkbench CEO Grant Findlay-Shirras. "If you need a product or service and want to save money, we have more businesses offering more deals, sales, and specials than any other site in our areas. If you're looking for something to do, we aggregate thousands of events and activities so you don't miss out and can find fun quickly. And if you're thinking about moving, we found neighbourhood real estate experts to make this process easier. Our mission is to bring our technology to as many neighbourhoods as possible and encourage more people to shop local and support the neighbourhood."
