Whippletree Farms Antiques are a large antique shop/dealer located in downtown Wauconda, IL, at a time when antique stores are seeing a huge drop in sales, many have jumped into online sales to help keep afloat, if not to simply provide an online presence. The client wanted to use the site to encourage people to visit the local store–with the option that they could enable ecommerce capabilities as desired.
We installed the popular ecommerce plugin, WooCommerce, however this is used merely as a product catalog and does not offer online purchasing. The idea was to post a large number of items that showed visitors the types of products they might find at the store. Enabling eCommerce is always available at anytime should the client desire.
