Walking into a physical store and browsing an online retail site for shopping products online are different experiences. Again, both in-store shopping and online shopping have their own pros and cons.

However, the future of businesses today is a hybrid model of both online shopping and in-store shopping. Hence the term BOPIS (Buy Online, Pick-Up In-Store) model.

If you are a store owner with multiple physical stores, you can benefit from a multi-store locator extension like our Magento 2 Store Locator.

You can configure multiple stores in the store locator and display them on your retail site. Customers can locate and select a store of their choice for product pick-up.

How Magento 2 Store Locators Can Help Your E-Commerce Business?

There are a number of benefits that both you and your customers can get by using a store locator extension.

A. For Your Customers

> Zero Shipping Fee

Sometimes, high shipping costs can be a big turnoff for several customers. But with BOPIS, you can help customers save money. They can simply surf products online, order them, and pick them up from your nearby store. Also, it helps customers escape the hassle of going to a physical store, picking products, and waiting in queues for billing. Overall, customers save both time and money while still getting the convenience of easy online shopping.

> Faster Service

At times, customers can’t afford to wait for even 2 days and want a product immediately. In that case, in-store pickup can help you tap into their urgent requirements. You can have the order they place ready and serve them in a matter of hours.

B. For You

> Instant Additional Purchases

When customers reach your store for their order pick-up, they may start looking around for more products. They may also realize a product that they forgot to add to their cart. In both cases, you can avail of a great opportunity to sell your products with unplanned purchases.

> Reduced Shipping Costs

Offering free deliveries may sound good but isn’t always feasible. By providing in-store pick-up, you can lower your overall shipping budget and invest it in some other productive business areas.

> Better Brand Outreach

When customers walk into your store for order pickup, they are likely to notice your other products also. They may like some and plan to buy them later or suggest your store to others too. This word-of-mouth publicity can contribute a lot to your omnichannel presence and help boost sales with enhanced outreach.
