In the process of updating the site with a responsive design, the ability to polish needed features became available to us. Based on the feedback we have received, we think we have come up with a great new way of viewing upcoming sales on our site. The new change will provide the user filtering options that allow more accurate results.
Take Chicago for instance, there are hundreds of sales in this particular metro area at any given time. To the left, you can see what your results would be when you are not using the filtering option.
We believe this update will make navigation much easier on our site. Before, when you entered a postal code, you were provided the closest metro area that we had in our system. With this new update, you will have the ability to customize the results that you receive. To accomplish this, you can use the Filtering Options button to select what type of sales you want to view, the distance you're willing to travel, etc.
You can still search by specific metro areas, but for those of you who live in a smaller area and only search by postal code, this helps you get right to what you’re looking for without as many steps as before.
You can see in this screenshot we used the Filtering Options button to narrow our search to local sales within five miles of 60559. Our new design will now provide the user pinpointed results with far better accuracy than before. Now you can focus on sales that are important to you. We wanted to make the experience tailored for our users and we hope that we've accomplished that.
Please continue to let us know what you like about the site (and don't like, too). You can give us feedback here, on Facebook, Twitter, email, or feel free to call and chat.
