Local Product Search
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do a search for a product you want to buy and be told all of the stores within a certain radius that carry it? Why do you think there is no such thing (or, if there is, I haven’t been able to find it)? Is it primarily an issue with local inventory systems not being generally sophisticated enough to support this? Do you think major retailers like Office Depot and Best Buy might be able to do this, or are even they not prepared to make available local inventory.
