Big changes are coming (and we think you're going to like them)!

Our goal has always been to help busy people solve everyday problems.  Whether it’s helping local merchants promote their business online, or helping busy consumers get things done – we focus on connecting people with a vibrant network of local business owners who are eager to help. Our goal hasn’t changed, but the way we approach it certainly will.  In the coming weeks, we will be introducing a "beta" version of the new and improved MerchantCircle.

Most of the time, people need more than just online reviews to solve a problem.  Our network of 1.6 million local merchants makes MerchantCircle the one place to go to find trusted merchants, get great deals, find expert advice and get competitive quotes for real-life projects.  No more surfing the web for hours trying to find what you need – we have it all right here.

Here are some exciting new features being added to help both MerchantCircle Neighbors and our member merchants:

For MerchantCircle Neighbors:

  • Deals - with enhanced search capabilities, promotions, coupons and offers will be easier to find

  • Reviews - we're making changes to ensure that you get real reviews from people in your community

  • Better search – find more relevant businesses and local advice

For our merchant members:

  • Free member support - just call our US-based call center (more to come soon!) 

  • New forums - same great discussions, but way faster and easier to use 

  • Updated listing templates - we’ve freshened up and reorganized the look and feel of listing pages so people learn more about your business

    So stay tuned – we’re excited about the new direction and we hope you like what you see.
