Crown Point Design was recently recognized by Google as a favorite location on Google Maps. We received a letter from Google that included a 5×7 decal that is meant to be placed in your storefront window. On the decal there is a unique 1×1 inch bar code that can be scanned by a Smartphone by curious shoppers. After scanning the bar code they will be directed to the company local listing on Google that includes things like store description, hours of operation, and customer reviews.
This unique technology is part of what Google Maps is developing as a ‘Favorite Places’ feature. Favorite places allows users to mark their favorite locations (whether it be shopping stores, hiking trails, or restaurants) Users can draw shapes to represent areas and lines to represent journeys and then publish your locations for public viewing.
