The app comes pre-loaded with different preset styles, making it easy to switch to one that fits your needs. The app also has robust customization options, letting you add or remove elements from your store locator map.
Store Locator helps you to display your location on the Store locator map by allowing you to input the store address – and then also giving you the option of a custom marker image to place on your location on the map.
Store Locator uses geotracking to automatically update location pins when your visitors change their location, so they always see the correct Store Locator map with their nearest store located on the store locator.
Store Locator also features a bunch of useful settings, including changing color schemes, changing settings like map zoom level, as well as the dimensions of the widget that will display on your website. The app also provides valuable analytics, giving you a detailed view of the number of active visitors using the store locator map.
The implementation of this app proves to be very appealing to international visitors of your website, as if they are visiting from a foreign country, they will often struggle to locate your store.

How does it work?
The store locator app keeps location of each user in app database. Then the app compares that with the current visitor's geographical position using Google maps API, allowing the app to display the nearest store based on the customer's location.
The app is designed to be very lightweight and efficient, only storing the location of each user for a limited time and does not store any other data about your users like their IP address or geographical position history
