Since its launch in 2008, Groupon has been helping businesses all over the Windy City by offering significant discounts for a variety of businesses, from restaurants to salons to delivery services to cultural events.
According to a report from Business Insider, Yahoo has made an informal offer to Groupon executives and backers to purchase the company for as much as $3 billion to $4billion.
It could be a valuable asset for Yahoo. Two years after launching, Groupon has branches in 230 markets around the world, it's no wonder Forbes dubbed Groupon "The Fastest Growing Company Ever."
(In case you're wondering, today's Chicago Groupon is $30 for $60 at Riva Crabhouse.)
