Launched early last month in the U.S., Path Talk Places has been made available by Path in the U.K., Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand. The service is supported in these countries in such businesses as Shoreditch Grind, Salt Yard, Harrods, Sydney Opera House, Marks & Spencer, and more.
As noted by Path:
So go ahead – check if Bond No. 9 is in stock at Harrods, get this season’s tour hours at the Sydney Opera House, or place an order for your favorite sweet treats from Marks & Spencer. It’s now just a quick text message away.
A result of Path's acquisition of TalkTo, Path Talk Places employs a network of Path Agents to enable users to message stores, restaurants, and other businesses for a variety of purposes, including product inquiries, reservations, and more. Impressively, its Path Agents usually are able to provide responses in less than five minutes.
