The Store locator integration enables your users to easily find nearby stores through the mobile app. By connecting the Store Locator to your app, you can:

2. Scope of the connection

The scope of the integration is defined as below:
  1. Arrange stores based on their proximity to the searched location.
  2. Allow users to search for locations by address, city, or ZIP code to see the distance between the searched location and the stores. 
  3. Display store information, including store image, name, address, contact information, opening hours, and descriptions.
  4. Enable users to call, email, or visit the store website directly from the app.
  5. Allow users to get directions to the store.
