Marc's Deep Discount Stores

 

This doesn't look too hard so I'll take on this project.

Hmm, I see there are a few Epect stores in CT at the end of the store listing. Guess I'll include those too.

While I never expected to find a Marc's POI file, I did search here and came up empty.

Marc's Deep Discount Stores http://marcs.com/ is a local chain (principally Northeast Ohio) that has really grown over the years. It's motto, "Fun for your money" is true! Marc's searches out closeouts from anywhere, and seemingly any product!

POI Files

tupedgrove, you are an angel...

like all the folks here that help by creating POI files. I'd still love to create them myself, but for some reason, when I use the "remove programs" function of Windows to get rid of the old Garmin POI Loader, it shows it as gone, but then loading the latest version still shows the older file sad.

Maybe I'll just give up on this PC. I just picked up a netbook and maybe I'll load a clean version there so that I can buy GeePeeEX and try to help others in return.

You can try this Microsoft's Windows Installer CleanUp Utility to remove the old POI Loader.

While I think I'm an "advanced" PC user, the saying that "a little bit of knowledge can be dangerous" certainly has applied to me in the past when thinking I knew what I was doing removing programs from my PC. So using the utility you suggested seemed a bit like messing with regedit but I gave it a whirl and very carefully removed the offending POI Loader v2.4 and appear to have successfully loaded v2.5.3 as I want. Thanks for the tip since the downloaded app will certainly come in handy for other hard to remove stains!

This is yet another example of how community members help each other here. In fact, I blogged about POI Factory in my company blog last week, so I think I'll add a post in the Open Talk forum pointing to it for everyone to read. It's not about selling anything--except maybe POI Factory--so hopefully Miss POI will let the link stand.

Thanks again!

tupdegrove, you are a champ!

Thanks for taking the time to create the POI file. Now I can find my favorite odd-ball items store with the push of a POI button! Thanks again!
