St. Louis entrepreneur Nathan Pettyjohn, the founder of aisle411, initially created his mobile application for an in-store mapping and product search. Now, nearly three years since aisle411 first launched, consumers have found the app useful for a wide range of purposes, from finding hygiene items to mapping out grocery shopping trips based on the items on a shoppers’ list.
