Our favorite Chicago-based online business, Groupon just yesterday launched their own online marketplace, Groupon Goods for its American subscribers. The first products to be available to a selected group of existing Groupon subscribers include TVs, coffee makers, and pilates sunglasses, mattresses, and cutlery.
