GiltCity Enters The Seattle Market

Our Emerald City welcomed GiltCity Seattle last night at RN74, Michael Mina's new downtown hotspot.

A perfect location for this hot growth company, The Gilt Groupe, which most know from their fashion site Gilt, or from their other sites Jetsetter and GiltTaste.   GiltCity, started in New York only a year ago, now we proudly bear the title as their 10th city. Seattle area native Tina Kirkpatrick, welcomed the opportunity to oversee this newest edition to our Emerald City, GiltCity, and we could not be more thrilled.

 

Tina spent time in Chicago at the Oprah show before coming back home to head up Gilt. Others at the opening included owners Bev and Luc from The Bar Method , Luan Tran and Erik and Mary Anne Ricard from Amazon, among other Seattle natives.

This Seattle launch coincides with two other US location openings in Atlanta and Dallas.  Similar to Groupon, SocialDeals and others, GiltCity offers experiences and services discounted from retail price - they differ, however, in the exclusively high-end, and premium quality of their offerings. Think spa services at a local 5-star Hotel, or a custom designed dinner experience at the newest hot spot in town. The kind of deal that before came only through knowing the right people. We love that Gilt has extended their business to our region, and are thrilled to see what else they have in store.

You'll be seeing and hearing more about GiltCity Seattle from us!
