Local.com Acquires Krillion's Local Product Information for $3.5 Million

Local.com, which operates a search engine that returns results based on a user’s location, has acquired Krillion for $3.5 million in cash. Founded in 2006 and based in Mountain View, Calif., Krillion aggregates local information, including a database of products that are available in stores locally.

Late last year, eBay acquired Milo for similar purposes. Krillion had raised at least $9.1 million from Leapfrog Ventures and Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, peHUB reports.
