Hi all: anyone know if HubSpot can support a store locator like the one here:

 

http://www.homegoods.com/tjx/locator.aspx

 

and if so, has anyone ever developed one?

The .aspx at the end of that url tells me that this page is hosted on and written for a windows server. 

 

Hubspot doesn't not allow you to upload server side code such as php, asp, python etc. as far as I know. You could definately recreate something like this using javascript/jquery, the google maps api, and a json file to store location data that would populate the map. 

 

Hubspot recently added HubDB to its developers tool box. They actually have this handy Tutorial:

http://designers.hubspot.com/docs/tutorials/lets-build-a-page-with-a-map-with-hubdb

 

That would help you do exactly what you are wanting and would do it with hubspot as opposed to working around Hubspot which I find to typically be the case in these instances. I haven't gotten a chance to play with HubDB yet so I couldn't say as to the difficulty but it seams highly customizable so the sky (or your programming capacity) is the limit as far as features and functionality go.

Jsum: This is awesome news, thanks! I was always sad about the not being able to upload server side code but if HubDB will do it, I'll check it out. Thanks again.

We do like the HubDB capability.  I was hoping there might be a more plug and play map (store locater solution) where we wouldn't have to develop anything?  We will be updating this page constantly and do not have technical resources at our company.  I'm considering StorePoint as a solution https://storepoint.co/#pricing but would love to know if there are any partners HubSpot would recommend for best integration/support?  We are really looking for a plug and play.
