business news in context, analysis with attitude

  • The Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal reports that a Northern California company, Cairo Inc., has created a website that is letting consumers know what products are on sale at various chains and allow them to compare prices on specific sale items.

    The service is free, with the owners hoping they will eventually make money through retailer and manufacturer sponsorships. The long term goal, apparently, is to put the freestanding insert companies out of business.
