Google store locator – Part 2

I wanted to try something different with the original Google store locator. I decided I wanted to just show a listing of the stores without a map. This is what you see on most sites that have store locators. I also wanted to add the Smarty template system to it. Here are the results. Now only the Google geocoding service is used to get the coordinates of the zip code entered, and is utilzed once during the setup of the locations to retrieve the coordinates. Now we could also add an internal database of zip code coordinates for the entire United States and it would be a completely self contained application, unless, of course, we also wanted to provide a link to a Google map.
