Most retailers who run business across multiple locations find a seamless alignment between sales activities and stock management important.

Suggest customers the nearest stores
Magento Store Pick supports customers to search for the suitable stores by radius. After customers enter the location then choose a radius, related results are shown on G-Map.
Despite the webstore is associated with this convenient feature, some thoughtful store owners want to make it more simple for their customers: When customers enter shipping address (by typing when customers login as guest or filtering from logged in account), Store Pickup only suggests stores near to that address according to the maximum radius configured in the back-end.
Add fee or differentiate store pickup options
A few retailers not only have a chain of stores but also pickup centers where customer take their ordered products. Customers choose their nearest location when checkout, however, if the center is located far from the warehouses, it costs to ship goods to that center. Therefore, some retailers require charges to the store pickup option. The additional fee can be calculated based on the total weight of goods, or be applied to some particular stores/ pickup centers.
Other retailers customize in the functionality that differentiates two types of store pickup options including Regular Store or Warehouse “Store”. It is more flexible & cost-saving for customers to choose picking locations, for they can take products directly at the nearby warehouse instead of choosing a far store/pickup center and being charged more fee.
Add rating system to Magento Store Pickup
Contacting store (via email or phone) is the default feature of Store Pickup but some retailers also request to add a rating feature to the module. A rate & review section is added into store detailed page to enable to leave review and star rating to the store. The rating then will be shown with store’s information when customers hover over the store icon on the map. This custom provides customers with more objective information when choosing the most appropriate store.
