I sit at my computer in the evenings and I think of things I need or want.

Simple things like oil for the boat, toilet paper, or check out the latest deals at the local pawn shop for guitar amplifiers...etc.
Most of these items are not at the same store, and require a special visit to each specialized store.
(No, I'm not talking about stuff you can generally get on Amazon.)

I don't want to make a list of each store to go to on a day...

And...I often forget.

Real example:

"I was just THERE (or near there) yesterday..and I forgot to get xyz!"

I want an app that alerts me when I'm near (or actually within) THAT store, that I want/need something there.

"buzz...buzz...you are in Walmart and you need oil for your boat"
"buzz buzz...you are within 250 feet of O'Reilly Auto Parts and you need some antifreeze for your daughter's car."

Oh, yes!
Cool!

Where do I find that app?

Perhaps you should develop the idea in an app.
