2. A search form to let website visitors locate a point of sale by performing a zip code search.

If you need to add several ZIP-codes, just type them in comma separated, e.g., 61176,61179,77777. In the website field, add your point of sale's own website url (e.g., www.mydealerownwebsite.com) if you wish to redirect your site visitors directly to the dealer's own website instead of this page when there's a Zip code search match.
Add search form mode:
This will add a new form and a Search button to the page. The customers can use this form to locate the nearest store.
