PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Pittsburgh has hit No. 15 on a new chart that ranks how expensive cities are for “yuppies” to live in. Locality.com has crunched the numbers and determined that Pittsburgh charges high prices for manicures, pedicures and dry cleaning.
Locality.com CEO Jay Shek explained just exactly how these calculations were made. He states that the website compares prices, availability, reviews, location and hours using third party information from sites like Google Maps and Yelp.
From hair cuts, to dry cleaning and pet care, Locality helps users compare over one million local businesses in 10,000 cities nationwide. Based off of that information, they created a unique pricing data for the services that “yuppies” use.
