The service is powered by Milo, a local shopping startup that eBay acquired in 2010. At the time, it was a strategic move to infiltrate a growing local commerce market.
Milo is a shopping search engine that helps consumers look for products available in nearby stores. For retailers, Milo is a platform for driving online shoppers to offline stores.
