                                                      How Are Listings Organized?

                                                        For most searches, listings will appear in relevance order. Results will try to approximate as much as possible to the word searched.

                                                          Why Are There Businesses Without A Map?

                                                            Some maps have been omitted because their address is inaccurate or incomplete. We are working in offering maps for all business listed. This requires that we compile the exact coordinates of each business. We appreciate your patience while we work out this situation.

                                                              Can I Purchase A Customized List Of Businesses?

                                                                At this time our company does not offered customized business listings for sale.
