Researchers reported that visits to daily-deal websites fell 25% last week compared with the second week in June, a decline that some analysts attributed to summer doldrums and vacations. But others said it is possible evidence of public indifference in a crowded market. Last month, Groupon's visits decreased 8.9%, and LivingSocial's declined 28%, according to analytics firm Compete. "With so many new entrants saturating the daily-deals space, deal fatigue may be setting in with consumers," said Matt Pace, Compete's managing director of retail and consumer products.
