I'm quoting on a website and the client has asked for a store locator and as i haven't done one of these before, i was hoping for a little advice please.
The idea is to have the user visit the page and they will have the option to enter a postcode / location and they will be given a list of the stores with the top being nearest, second being second nearest, and so on. Pretty standard stuff. They would also like to use geolocation so users can just click the button and it will detect their current location and list the stores as above.
If anyone can offer any advice on this it would be greatly appreciated. Or if there's anything i need to be aware of for a project like this.
Lastly, i was toying with having a sub-domain for each of the different stores but it might just be easier to have a page for each site. Is there any benefit/disadvantahe in having a sub-domain for each store?
Thanks for reading
