I realize that we have categories on the home page of eCRATER, but I was wondering if there would be any way to have a listing of stores by name?

Surely there would be too many. Big Tall would know the answer, but did I read somewhere that there were 18000 stores, but only 6000 of them are active. Even 6000 would be a very big list Question

I agree it would be a huge list. Probably impossible but I would love it, too.

Very true, very true......I kind of figured that when I asked the question, just wasn't sure.

Ideally I'd like a store directory too but I can understand why we don't have one. Too many people open a store and abandon it. They may or may not have listed items. Some people open stores solely to spam the community or to chat with us on the forum. Others are reserving their space for when the big kahuna dies.

It would be fun to be able to scan down a list for upcoming Christmas goodies... sometimes we don't know what we're looking for until we accidently run across it! lol Laughing

Either way, I love eCrater!!! Very Happy

Looking through the forum here is always fun and I've bookmarked a few people's stores to check a little closer to the holidays (when I have more dinero to spend! lol) and pick up a few gifts...

Have a great night all! Smile

I think not having a store directory is another element that points to the fact that the eCrater concept is more about standalone storefronts rather than a mall-type venue. As far as I know eCrater only promotes itself to sellers so no store directory makes sense, I guess.

I wish we could have a store list also, but I certainly understand with that many stores it would be hard....and also about it not being like a mall we each have our own store....But if we all would buy from each other when we have an occasion to buy, it would certainly help everyone here at Ecrater....

Oh, I try to do my part as far as that is concerned! I have bought from quite a few of the shops so far.

BGT - www.BusinessesGrowingTogether.com will soon have an ecrater.com directory - for those that wish to put their store in by category. Not sure if I can manage to put soemthing together by store name. It's a whole lot of work to set up a great directory which is why it's still not done! but I'm working on it.

Even a "find a store" with A-B-C's....
I have had to come back here to the forums soooo many times & try to find the store I was thinking of. I usually remember what letter they start with, but after that, my brain has gone blank. (no surprise there Laughing )

Good reason to make use of your browser's "Add to Favorites" button, and you can add a short description of the store beside it's title. Smile

for me personally... I do have a "fav ecrater" file in my favs....
I just thought for other visitors that pop in from time to time. They could search for "that store" they heard about but forgot to write it down.
Shocked
