The End of DailyCandy

Before there was Gilt, Refinery29 or Groupon, there was DailyCandy. It was a daily email about something - a restaurant, a store, a yoga class - that was hot, that you had to know about. It started in 2000. 5 years later the NY Times called it the undisputed grand dame of style sites, and 8 years later DailyCandy was so popular that Comcast bought it reportedly for $120 million. Now, Comcast is closing DailyCandy with the parting words “It’s Been Sweet.”
