The Cheerwine® Finder works by searching locations where you can find Cheerwine®. All you have to do is enter any type of address into the search field and the site will retrieve locations that are within range. Since it is powered by Google Maps, any type of address that you can enter there can be entered in the Cheerwine® Finder.
Once you enter an address, the map will be updated with Cheerwine® cans representing the locations you can find it. Clicking on any of the cans will open a popup balloon that gives more information about that address.
Popup Balloon Displayed Example
If you were able to find Cheerwine® at this location, click the green thumbs up button. If not, click the red thumbs down one. This will help others in the future by showing the success rate.
Adding a New Address
The site works off the idea that if you spot Cheerwine® in a store, you can share that location with others. In order to enter a new address, you will need to have a name, street address, city, state, and zip code. Along with this, you will have to select which type of location it is and what kind of Cheerwine® they serve. Entering any additional information, such as a phone or website, is optional but definitely encouraged. Finally, you will need to enter the captcha security code. This prevents any type of spam bot from submitting bogus data multiple times.
Once you have done so, the map will update with a point at the location of your address. If they address has already been entered by someone else, a message will be displayed to inform you.
I Added an Address but it's not Displaying on the Map
Addresses submitted to the Cheerwine® Finder are first approved before they are added. By approved, it means that the address, name, etc, is valid and appropriate. Once this is done, it will display on searches and the sidebar for most recent addresses.
