Advantages: Quick, Easy, Maps
Disadvantages: Not in-depth
I normally use www.yell the online Yellow Pages, to find business's and well known companies in my area. However, I find that yellow pages, is really slow, and it can take ages to find what you are search for.
I heard about Scoot, so I thought I'd try it, the first thing I noticed was how quickly the pages loaded, within half a minute the home page was fully loaded.
The lay out is very simple, at the top of the page, you can find business's in any area, so for example if you wanted to find a plumber in Skegness, it would come up with all the plumbers in that area.
You can also search by company name, so for example if you wanted to find an Argos store in Ely, it would come up with results.
If you are searching for well lnown companies, there will usually be more information about the shop, and there is even a handy map that you can print out to aid you on your journey.
You can also find cinema's, there is a direct link to LOOT the best online and off line free ads.
Scoot is great if you want to find a known business quickly, and it will certainly come in handy around Christmas time, when stocks have run out in your local store.
Just recently my local Focus Do It All had run out of their stocks JMC 301 piece drill set, and I was able to locate another store quite near me with stock.
Scoot is not as in-depth as the yellow pages, and I would reccomed yellow pages if you are after a more specialised business, but for quick popular searches Scoot is the best.
