While setting up a website for an author, I was asked if we could have a page with a store locator for people to find local stores that sell the author’s book. I didn’t know if anything like this existed, so off I went to search…
Not only does a Store Locator WordPress plugin exist, but, it rocks! The plugin requires a Google API key, but is very straightforward about how to acquire one and the setup is a breeze. The backend of this plugin is simple and easy to manage.
I have included a short screenshot of me adding a location to the map, and viewing it in the store locator. I apologize for the lack of audio; I just don’t have the setup for that today. However, you’ll be able to see how easy it is to add a store, and what the page looks like when the map/locator is loaded.
See it in action
While additional themes for the plugin are currently unavailable, I’ve found this plugin to work very well and look fabulous on it’s own.
What would you use a store locator plugin for?
Disclaimer: The site in the screenshot is not officially live, but it does belong to one of my clients and I’m excited to say, I’ll be showing it off real soon!
