Store Locator Function:In this article we will discuss the kinds of information you will be entering into your Store Locator section. You will find this section on your Administration page in the Retailer Information box. To watch a video tutorial on this feature, go to the IGA Coca-Cola Institute and enroll in the IGALink online course.
When you select the Store Locator function you will be taken to this page:
Edit a Store: This is the function you will be using most often from this section. You may update or edit any of your store's information here.
When you select Edit a Store, the page below will load and from here you will choose which store's existing information you would like to edit.
Once you choose which store you would like to edit, you will be taken to the page below where you can enter various kinds of information that will appear on your website under Store Information.
*Please note that if you change the address of your store and that makes the current latitude and longitude invalid, you will need to run the Latitude and Longitude function as described at the bottom of this article so it will display correctly on the Google Map portion of your website.
You can also fill in your store's hours of operation and the services and departments your store offers here:
Below that you will see a section where you can enter your store as a location that does or does not have a weekly ad. If your location does have a weekly ad, you will need to select which day of the week your ad breaks.
Update Hours: This feature, which is also accessible in the the Store Administration Index box, is designed for retailers with multiple stores who want to update the store hours to all stores at once or stores within a selected state. For retailers with multiple stores, this is much faster than updating the stores one at a time using the Edit a Store function.
Update Latitude & Longitude: This feature allows you to run a technology process that will look up addresses assigned to each store and apply new GPS coordinates. This allows you to update store locator maps feature without knowing a store's specific GPS coordinates. Once this process has been completed, we recommend reviewing the new map assigned to make sure the GPS coordinates are marking the store location correctly.
