Industry: Food & Beverage
5pm.co.uk, the country's top restaurant reservation and
review site has been given an exciting makeover and sees the launch of
its brand new Health & Beauty section.
For almost ten years, 5pm.co.uk has enabled it's users to dine out for less in
restaurants across the country. Now the site will show consumers that less is most
definitely more in the world of health and beauty by offering exclusive offers,
discounts and deals on treatments at top spas and salons.
The health & beauty offers will initially be
in Glasgow only but will be rolled out across the country in the coming months. Some
of the top brands and salons that have already signed up are: Isis Crowne Plaza,
Russell Cowie Hairdressing, Aveda @James Dun’s House, Aveda @ Mar Hall, 29 Royal
Exchange Square and Beti Reilly.
The site will feature profile pages for salons and spas with descriptions of
facilities and photographs meaning people can feel more relaxed about trying
somewhere new because they’ve been able to have a peek inside. Users will also be
able to review and rate their experiences on the site to gain loyalty points in the
same way that they currently can with restaurant bookings.
Gillian O’Hara, Health & Beauty Manager at 5pm.co.uk said: "Everyone likes to look
good and whether you're going for that long needed trim or treating yourself or a
loved one to a spa day, you no
longer need to break the bank. We have partnered with some fantastic establishments
to offer an incredible range of deals and we will be adding to them over the coming
The innovative new section is yet another development in the already booming
business of 5pm.co.uk headed up by Chairman Charles Shaw, who commented: "5pm.co.uk
has always been a simple business model that works extremely well for both
restaurateurs and consumers. Restaurants fill tables that would otherwise be empty
and consumers can eat in great restaurants every day of the week for less money.
"Our research into the Health & Beauty industry has told us that this model can be
transferred easily to work for salons and spas. The current economic climate has
been tough for this industry, but we know that our users will welcome the
opportunity to pamper themselves and still come home with money in their pockets."
The announcement of the new section coincides with the launch of the brand new
5pm.co.uk website where customers can take advantage of both the new health and
beauty section and the exclusive restaurant offers.
5pm is Scotland’s number one online restaurant reservation service, offering the
restaurateur the opportunity to fill seats that would otherwise be empty and the
consumer great dining deals with no booking charges.
The website was launched in 2000 and now operates in over 1000 restaurants across
the UK with over 180,000 registered users.
The new Health & Beauty section is being piloted in Glasgow but will gradually be
rolled out across the country.
