70% of online customers search information about physical stores and use the store locator tool to get directions.
Even though many users rely on Google maps to locate physical stores and get directions, most of them prefer visiting the store’s or company’s website and use the store locator tool to get correct and up-to-date information.
There are people who use the store locator to find the closest shop, to check the opening hours, or find the Customer Care contact number, or people who use it to spot which shop offers a specific service or sells a specific product category: there are manifold reasons why users search online before buying.
Our YITH Store Locator is an all-inclusive solution to all these needs.
Create countless shops with custom information and highlight the featured shops
You can create as many physical stores as you wish and set address, opening hours, contact details, description, custom image for each of them. Finally, you can also choose the shops to feature and that will show up in the first two search results.
