LivingSocial To Open Call Center In Tucson

CBRE completed a 30,500 SF lease with LivingSocial at a four-story, Class A office building located at 250 S. Williams Circle in Tucson.

LivingSocial, an online discount promoter for local products and services, plans to open a new call center in Tucson in July.

David A. Volk, SIOR, and Bruce A. Suppes of CBRE’s Tucson office represented the landlord, Kent Circle Investments LLC, in negotiating the five-year lease agreement. LivingSocial, based in Washington D.C., was represented by Steve Burman and Jay Farmer of Jones Lang LaSalle, also in Washington D.C., and Andrew Medley in the firm’s Phoenix office. The exact financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“This building is among the most modern in Tucson and was specifically designed with technology-intensive users in mind,” said CBRE’s Volk.

LivingSocial will occupy the building’s entire top floor, bringing its occupancy to 100 percent. In addition to the new Tucson location, LivingSocial also has large offices in Washington D.C., New York, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Kent Circle Investments LLC is controlled by Seldin Real Estate Inc. of Scottsdale. The company also owns the high-rise office building at 5151 E. Broadway in Tucson.

Amazon And Twitter Are Resources For Savvy Shoppers This Weekend

There are many Web resources for the frugal shopper, like Groupon, LivingSocial, SocialBuy and BuyWithMe, but there are still ways to save on the Web without printing a coupon.

Amazon

Amazon’s daily Gold Box deals were intensified this week with the addition of Black Friday Week Lightning Deals. Everything from atlases to car seats were available at an immensely discounted price for a short period of time and in limited quantities.

Black Friday deals at Amazon include ridiculously cheap DVDs, diamond earrings and even a Martha Stewart electronic cake cutting system – as if you didn’t already have one of those.

After Thanksgiving’s shop-till-you-drop marathon, Amazon’s Gold Box deals are available every day. You can sign up to receive daily e-mails or texts about the Gold Box deal, or you can follow the deal on Twitter.

Twitter

Twitter is another resource for shoppers this weekend.

If you’re a little behind the game and are still looking for Black Friday deals, try searching #blackfriday. No doubt people will be tweeting about their finds and stores will probably still be tweeting about their promotions.

Search #cybermonday and you’ll find people tweeting about deals. Check out the following Twitter pages for links to some great Cyber Monday deals.


If you still want to save after the holiday weekend, Twitter can still be a great resource.

For example, @RetailMeNot shares coupons for more than 65,000 retailers worldwide. You can also visit the Web site if you’re looking for a specific coupon.
