SaleLocator is a new local shopping search engine and iPhone app that brings local retail sales information to consumers. The startup plans to step in the arena as one of the largest collection of in-store sale information, SaleLocator helps bargain hunters find the best ongoing sales near them by showcasing local brick-and-mortar sales in all US markets, from the smallest towns to the biggest cities.
Terrific for shopping purists and research online, buy offline shoppers. The concept is to make life easier and it does so efficiently by removing the need for signups, coupons to be printed and no waiting for shipping. You can readily sign up with one of your social profiles using the Facebook or Twitter for the purpose. The startup brings together advertised and unadvertised promotions that are already happening in the consumer’s neighborhood, and shoppers can search for local retail sales (based on city, state or zip) by keyword and category. Bargain hunters can find local sales by keyword and in nearly 20 popular categories including Clothing & Apparel, Furniture, Health & Beauty, Sports & Fitness, Toys and more.
SaleLocator is powered by a robust platform that leverages a dedicated research team and a proprietary retail sourcing process to gather sale data. The process is further streamlined with the startup working in directly with national and regional retail brands to showcase the most relevant current sales and non-published promotions for local shoppers.
