Google seems to be quietly rolling out store interiors to street views in Google Maps [h/t to Hacker News user mikeocool ].
So far, LAUNCH editors have found two instances of Store Views, one at Comics Toons N Toys in Tustin, CA and the other at Gluten Free Speciality Market in Sacramento.
In February 2010, Search Engine Land received a tip from a New York retailer that Google came to their store to take pictures for a new product called "Google Store Views." In April, the Google Lay Long Blog confirmed that they started taking pictures of business interirors.
LAUNCH editors have contacted Google and will update this story if we receive a response. In the meantime, we will look into other instances of Google Store Views.
