Popular dining out deals app, The Dealer is offering up to 50% off food and drink at some of Manchester’s most popular restaurants and bars during Black Friday week, and raising money for homeless charities in the process.
The free smartphone app will offer huge discounts at more than 85 of Manchester’s favourite restaurants and in return asks customers to donate to charities committed to fighting homelessness.
The Dealer App will be packed with its largest number of discounts ever during Black Friday week, 20 November – 26 November – giving users access to exclusive 50% off deals, available all day and all week, and which cannot be found anywhere else.
The app has raised almost £500 for homeless charities since its launch just four weeks ago.
Customers simply choose a deal within the app, arrive at the venue and get staff to enter their unique pin code, the app then gives you the opportunity to return a small amount of the money it has saved you back to charities fighting homelessness in Manchester.
Some of Manchester’s favourite restaurants will be taking part, with discounts available at Norther Quarter pizza parlour, PLY, A Place Called Common, Bosu Body Bar Joshua Brooks, Bravissimi and Stage & Radio, as well as Foundation Coffee House.
Donations from the app will go to Manchester-based Mustard Tree, a local charity set up in 1994 to help transform the lives of people who are affected by poverty and homelessness, by helping them gain skills and reach their full potential.
Edward Alun-Jones, director at The Dealer App, said: “Taking part in Black Friday gives us the opportunity to bring an even larger number of discounts to Manchester residents, while providing an extra chance and incentive to donate to local homeless charities, which is especially important at this time of year.
“We have raised hundreds of pounds so far for our homeless charity partners and we hope to help continue to combat the growing homelessness issue in Manchester and the UK by placing the issue at the centre of everything we do.
“By giving people the opportunity to give back after they have saved, we hope to raise additional funds for charities and services that are stretched by government cuts. As well as money, we also contribute the time of our employees to homeless charities every week.”
The Dealer works with seven homeless charities across the UK and has chosen Manchester’s Mustard Tree as its regional partner, an organisation which aims to create choice and opportunity for people who are homeless and marginalised.
The app aims to shake up the way vendors list and advertise promotions, and intends to directly impact the number of new customers that visit the restaurant and ultimately boost restaurant revenue.
