We launched this today - you can now search snooth as usual, but set your zip code to see results in your local area. This is ideal if you are in the mood to just drive to the store and pick something up, but still want to use Snooth as a research tool.
You can find the controls at the bottom of the search control bar (the thing with the price sliders on it).
There are a few issues that we're still working through, but it works ok now, and once we refine it, I think its going to be a very valuable feature.
The main issue is that, when you type your local zip we just show you the closest few stores, when instead we should be showing you the closest stores that actually have what you want in stock! Yeah, we spotted that one fast...
Anyway, have a play and tell us what you think.
PS. We also cleaned up the buy page - you can now leave reviews or testimonials for stores there, and we scrapped the thumbs up / down in favor of the more recognized snooth glasses.
Search by your local Zip Code

Pretty exciting stuff -- as Philip says we'll be making some improvements to this over time, as well as opening the feature to a global audience. As always, don't hesitate to let us know what you think.

I can't figure out how to do it. What slider thing ae you talking about? Could you be more specific as to where the location of this feature is?

KAK: The price sliders are on the left hand side, when you run a search. At the bottom of this module, there is a dropdown to select your country, and you will be able to enter zip/postal for certain countries.
