In what may be the first of many flash sale site casualties, DailyCandy has shut down Swirl.com. A note on the site redirects users to DailyCandy's local deals: "After two years of helping you stock your closet with Swirl.com, we're excited to let you know that DailyCandy Deals will now be your one-stop shop for amazing offers on all things fashion, food, and fun. At deals.dailycandy.com, you'll save up to 70 percent on your favorite sites around the Web as well as at hidden gems throughout your city." [Racked N'tl]
