(NBC) Just in time for the holidays, there is a chance to save a dollar or two while shopping.

A new web tool called Pricelocal promises Internet shoppers an easy way to get “Amazon prices" on products at local retails stores.

Pricelocal founder Matt Chosid says the app is designed for people who mostly shop online but want an item in real time or want to support a local business.

Customers can find a product they like on Amazon.com then click on the Pricelocal button and wait for a response from a local store that matches the amazon price.

Pricelocal launched nationally last month, following a pilot test in Michigan last year.

According to Chosid, since rolling out the product thousands of people and hundreds of retailers across the country have joined the Pricelocal program.
