TheFind introduces local shopping

January 09, 2008

Mid-december, TheFind improved its already impressive shopping search, by adding local shopping capacities. If you are US-based, you can register to TheFind, indicate your town / state / zip code, and get near-by local presence of online stores. TheFind doesn’t have access to real-time inventory of those local stores; but by displaying their phone number, it gives you a way to quickly check if the product you are looking for is available or not.

It’s really a great v1 even if, I think, the usability could be improved:

Well done, TheFind! I’m waiting for the v2 :)
