CountySpot Blog

County Spot Directories has just launched the first directory for North Carolina for Granville County.

We have just created our very first county spot directory for North Carolina at! This site is built using our version 3 and includes a business directory for Oxford NC, a coupons section and lots of great information for Granville County NC. North Carolina marks the third state we have now included in our county spot directory list and we have plans to add even more to that list very soon. The Granville County site is being maintained on its own domain as we continue to work to find the best formula for search engine results. 

Now that we have added this North Carolina county we will soon be updating to include more information about North Carolina and adding Granville County to our business directory section here at

We're very excited to introduce our newest CountySpot addition; FREE CLASSIFIED ADS! As our county directories classified2continue to grow we felt a need to put all listings together in one place for ease of use. Sorted by region (county) these classified ads are free to use. You can add photos, tweet about your ads and even post them straight to Facebook for free.

We also offer a few upgrade options for business and those that may be interested such as featured ads and color changes. These options allow special ads to grab more attention for a very small fee. View our classifieds, or go ahead and post your free classified.

Some of you may notice that we have changed it up a bit during the last few months and have spent more time working to upgrade our directory sites and tie them together more effectively. Our expansion has slowed a bit, but we're still moving along. We've added Franklin and Bucks County to this site and have also launched a new domain for Westmoreland County. Our current plans involve getting everything ironed out to forge ahead into other states in the Spring of 2013! Here is the latest PA map of our progress.


Altoona shoppers are rushing around like crazed maniacs this morning as Black Friday is officially here. But wait, its been here since yesterday....

black fridayStores in the Altoona area have created chaos with early openings for this holiday shopping season and now most die hard Black Friday shoppers don't even know what time it is, let alone what day! We were out and about yesterday (Thanksgiving) morning at 6 in the morning to put some signs out and you would not believe the number of people that were apparently thankful for the fact that some stores decided to open at 7 am on Thanksgiving.

The parking lot at Boscov's was nearly full and we watched as cars flew into the lot from all directions in anticipation of the 7 am doorbusters. People were already lined up to bust the doors of Big Lots as well. Can't help but wondering who was basting their turkey?

The pre-Black Friday, Black Friday, craziness didn't stop at Boscov's and Big Lots though. Altoona was hoping all day and really started getting packed as the 8 pm openings of stores like Sears and Kmart and the 10pm opening of Target and Walmart approached.

The parking lot at Wal-mart looked like they were hosting a concert for Justin Bieber by 8pm and the lines at Target seemed more appropriate for a free power ball winning ticket give away.

Best Buy was so full by the time of their midnight opening that people were parking across Amelia Ave at Home Depot (which actually waited until 5am on BLACK FRIDAY to open) and charging across the street to stand in a line which wrapped from the front doors, down the side, across the back and half way down the other side of the building!

Most of the people that we spoke with while waiting in lines seemed to think that the early openings were a bad idea, but it sure didn't stop the shopping madness! We'd love to tell you more, but surely some Altoona store is about to open and we must be there! Good luck to all the fellow crazy shoppers out there..
