Nowadays, big companies dominate most of the businesses so books are bought from Amazon, groceries are bought from big supermarkets, etc. This phenomena is affecting local businesses which has good products to offer as well but do not get the attention of the buyers. This phenomena has few reasons, firstly big companies are always having offers beside which they are selling you other non-discounted products, secondly their addresses are well-known so you do not have to look around in addition to other reasons such as the variety of products, etc.

My application is made to solve the first two problems so local businesses are able to advertise their offers to attract customers in addition clear on map address of the business, clear description and pre-set expiry date of the offer.

This solution will be very appealing to customers as well who are always looking for cheaper products in their neighbourhood.

The application provides two interfaces, one for sellers to post, view and edit their deals. Another interface for buyers to locate local deals based on search word or category and the maximum distance accepted between them and the searched deal and then locate it on map.
