Have you ever been in a store and have difficulty finding a product?

Have you ever been in a store and have difficulty finding a product?
And there seems to be no employee around to ask?
Or if you find an employee, he/she doesn't work in the department of products you're looking for and so he/she has to page/call on another employee in that department and you have to wait even longer for a simple question of where things are?
Well, say hello to http://bakon.ca!
http://bakon.ca helps customers find where products are on their own.  But the site is brand-new so there isn't much data on it...yet!
The idea is that store employees or other customers who know where products are can help each other by adding product location details into our site that can be searched by anyone else.

Over time this site would be very useful to people who have problems finding products.

Just simply look up a product within a store up, if you find it where it's described, give it an up-vote so it'll help others find it too.  If you didn't find it where it's described, down-vote it so others know to not bother with that product entry.

Through crowd-sourcing, we should be able to help each other find products easier.
