CALGARY, Tuesday, September 16, 2014 â€“ Today, Shoptoit launched Canadaâ€™s first comprehensive retail store directory to help Canadian shoppers find the stores they are looking for while simultaneously making it easier for Canadian retailers to get found online.
The ShopToIt.ca â€œFind Storesâ€ search is currently populated with more than 90,000 brick and mortar store locations (complete with maps, phone numbers and store descriptions), as well as more than 2,200 ecommerce stores.
This is a free service for retailers and Canadian consumers. Shoptoit.ca distributes listing data to top search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing, and feeds the listing engines at Yellow Pages and Factual, so Canadians can find the stores they are looking for with the click of a mouse.
Retailers need only fill out a quick form for verification to create a free account. They will then be emailed a login and can add relevant content from there. Retailers participating in the directory receive a complimentary bi-weekly activity report via email and can login to change/modify/enhance their directory listing at anytime.
â€œWe set out with a goal to make shopping easier for the Canadian consumer, and to create a platform for retailers to reach them. By feeding directory information to large search engines, and our partners – Yellow Pages and Factual – we are giving local and online retailers a cost-free advantage theyâ€™ve not had before,â€ says Scott Sanderson, co-founder of Shop To It Inc. â€œOur current database is substantial. Retailers and etailers not yet represented are one quick step away from including themselves in Canadaâ€™s largest online and local shopping directory.â€
