Close.By/Summit App Launched; Dynamic Tool Connects Consumers to Local Businesses

The Close.By/Summit app has launched in the iTunes Store.
SUMMIT, NJ - Close.By/Summit, a ground-breaking new app that enables consumers to find products, promotions and even parking in the Hilltop City in just seconds, has launched.
Whether it's a down jacket for the winter, a Pilates class, the latest restaurant specials, or convenient parking, Close.By/Summit connects consumers with businesses and, when consumers opt in, they receive special, limited-time and limited-quantity offers from local merchants.
The app is free to consumers, and now available in the iTunes Store. A sampling of current Close.By/Summit launch partner offers include:

- Free day pass at the Summit Area Y

To claim most of these offers, some of which are in limited quantities, consumers simply need to display the app from their phone to the business while the offer is still posted on the app, or while supplies last.
Close.By/Summit users can search for -- and find -- virtually anything in town, even things that search engines like Google may not index. Users can also specify the types of alerts and offers that they want, and merchants can deliver offers and messages based on time and location.

Launch partners and sponsors in Summit include: Towne Realty Group, The Summit Area YMCA, Hat Tavern, Salon 44, The Grand Summit Hotel, Ahrre’s Coffee, Salon 44, Doria Pizzeria, Village Trattoria, Lois Schneider Realtor, Lori Dahl (Coldwell Banker), and Alison Lees (Lois Schneider Realtor), and Summit Downtown, Inc.  Other registered businesses that are currently providing offers include Bar Method, Center for Wellbeing, COO on Demand, Fembot, Kidville, Liss Printing, Makeovers, Momentum Cycling and Fitness, Murray & Finn, The Connection for Women and Families, Smallwood Financial, and Tide Dry Cleaners, with additional merchants joining daily.
TAPinto Summit is a promotional partner with Placecodes, the app's developer.
The app's developers are also offering local businesses, through December 31, free access to all available tools. For more information, or to register, visit Close.By's registration page or call 908-248-4321.
