Find All Sorts of Products in Nearby Stores: Goodzer Goes National, Bringing Billions of Products From Half a Million Local Stores to Shoppers' Fingertips

Website and iPhone App Rank Inventory by Price and Location at Small 'Mom & Pops' and Big-Box -- for Nearly One Thousand Times More Products Than Its Closest Competitor

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2011) - Goodzer (www.Goodzer.com), the best way to find all sorts products from all kinds of stores anywhere in the country, today expands its reach to bring easily searchable inventory and merchandise information on more than 2 billion products from half a million brick-and-mortar stores to its updated Website and iPhone app.

Just in time for the holiday shopping rush, Goodzer lets people search for exactly what they want -- without running from store-to-store, searching among websites, or waiting for shipping -- wherever they want to buy it, filtered by distance, price, or specific store.

"Online research has been a huge part of shopping for a long time, but searching for products to buy in store has been historically hard. In the last few years, there's been progress, but no one has delivered such a large number and wide variety of consumer products until now," said Dmitry Pakhomkin, co-founder and CEO of Goodzer. "People no longer need to spend hours browsing websites for the right item or best price; and they don't have to rely on physically browsing through stores for to find items that haven't been viewable online."

From black cocktail dresses to the latest must-have gadgets, Goodzer quickly and efficiently catalogues goods from any merchant with a website -- regardless of whether it's a single, local store or one of the world's largest chains -- to deliver the most comprehensive, up-to-date listing of local product information.

Without having to access point-of-sale systems -- requiring nothing from the retailer and removing barriers faced by larger competitors -- Goodzer's patent-pending technology both sources products and provides stores with a free and seamless way to increase their online and mobile presence, connecting them directly with consumers looking to purchase what they sell.

The company is closing a round of seed funding which will be used to support company growth through new hires, feature enhancements and the infrastructure needed to expand its geographical footprint outside the U.S.

"We're only at the tip of the iceberg," Pakhomkin continued. "We've invented a scalable technology that can identify product information better than Silicon Valley's giants, and now we'll have the resources to move forward -- first with the U.S., and ultimately the rest of the world."
