A little bit about the people behind Island Daily Deals.  Fraser Paterson & Nadine Shemilt, both young professionals born and raised in Nanaimo, BC saw the need to create a local niche group buying website after experiencing what the big markets had to offer.  With Fraser coming from BC in Business with a background in Finance, and Nadine working in Real Estate, there was definitely a learning curve to creating an Internet company.  Started from their kitchen table, Nadine & Fraser took on the challenge and created what you now know as Vancouver Island’s successful group buying website.  Click here to read the story on Nadine & Fraser as reported by the Business Examiner in 2011:  On January 24, 2013, Island Daily Deals has reached it’s 2 years in business!!
