Who We Are
Tack-it is itself a small business.¬† Our office is located along the beautiful¬†shoreline of Lake Michigan, in southwestern Michigan.¬† After many years in the planning phase followed by a few years in the design and construction phase, Tack-it's debut to internet users came on April 30th, 2010.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide a community centered, family friendly website connecting users wishing to buy, sell, trade, connect and share.¬† In doing this we also aspire to provide an effective platform dedicated to supporting local and regional small businesses within their respective communities. Tack-it, in an effort to serve and give back to the communities we serve, contributes a percentage of advertisement space to local non-profit and charitable organizations.
How We Came to Be¬†
Tack-it conceptually began in early 1999, coincidentally the result of a costly yet unproductive traditional classified.¬† The origin of the Tack-it name was conceived a short time later by the designer, while passing a community posting board in a local grocery store.¬† The vast number of varying color pushpins, and tacks used to display the colorful array of individual paper postings seemed a perfect representation.¬† The first domain was then quickly secured, followed by others over the years.¬† Tack-it remained conceptual in nature for nearly¬†8 years to follow.¬† The general concept of a web-based community classified or posting service remained a constant throughout.¬† At last, in the fall of 2007, Tack-it moved forward from conceptual design and initial work began on the site.¬† We are excited to offer our site to all its' users and hope that each individual's experience is a positive one.¬† As with any service, Tack-it will strive to make changes as they become apparent to the ever changing needs of its' users.¬† Feel free to contact us with your ideas.
