Locality offers comparative reviews, prices, hours and locations for a variety of local services in cities and towns throughout the U.S.
Locality is a site that allows users to compare prices for services such as haircuts and dry cleaners in their home towns. The service works similarly to sites such as Kayak or Priceline, as users are instructed to type in one of a variety of categories as well as a corresponding city. A search for “Gym” in New York City, for instance, returns tons of results, with the lowest price set at $10 per month. Locality also explains that the average price of a monthly gym fee in New York is $48. This tool is especially useful for cities perceived to be expensive such as New York City, allowing users to find cheaper options. The site also seamlessly integrates reviews from Yelp, so you can choose the best option based on user reports as well as on prices. There’s also a map integrated on the results pages, so you can filter your search by more specific location within your city.
Locality is now available in over 10,000 cities throughout the United States. In each of those cities, it has guaranteed results for hair salons, nail salons, hair removal, eyelash services, day spas, massages, skin care centers, tanning salons, dry cleaners, gyms, yoga studios, chiropractors, dentists, eye doctors, oil change centers, day cares, preschools and pet boarding locations. As if those services weren’t enough, the site also allows users to search for places not already listed on the site. Locality has amassed a huge collection of comparative prices, truly making the competition within various U.S. cities transparent. If you’re in need of a specific service in your hometown, be sure to check Locality before you spend too much money on a similar service from somewhere else.
