JAX Mercantile - Shop in Shop

JAX Mercantile has been providing customers with top quality functional gear since 1955 . Whether it's camping equipment, hiking gear, footwear, clothing, fishing tackle, hunting equipment, hardware, or military surplus, JAX is sure to have a full stock of brands you know and trust.

Since the 1980's, owner Jim Quinlan has been taking great steps forward to put JAX Mercantile above the rest, and 2019 is no exception. This August JAX Mercantile launched their brand new Shop-in-Shop store pages. All seven of their locations now have a fully-hosted store page that combines proven SEO tactics, content and events, an immersive inventory display experience, and more in an effort to prominently feature their stores and drive in-store traffic and sales.

Source for Sports, they know their stuff

In the late 1960s, a collection of sporting goods stores in Southwestern Ontario decided to buy as a group, allowing them to create better value for their customers. This buying group grew to become the brand known today as Source For Sports, and has over 150 retail locations across Canada. image In pure Source For Sports fashion, they have taken yet another step in an effort to create better value for their customers, this time catering to the ever-changing landscape of shoppers' behavior. Source For Sports is now sending daily inventory feeds to Locally for more than 30 of their locations, and there's more on the way. With more that 70 brands overlapping between Locally and Source, shopppers can find products in-stock at their local Source For Sports store on just about all of their favorite brand's websites.

Charm City Run - Baltimore location

Charm City Run has added another location's inventory to Locally, bringing their total number of locaitons to lucky number 7. Competitor Running's top running store of 2016, Charm City Run was founded in 2002 by Josh & Kara Levinson with the mission to inspire and move the human spirit one sole at a time.

Charm City Run knows that foot type and mechanics can vary significantly from person to person. A great shoe model for one runner/walker will not necessarily work for the next. They are committed to making sure each person is properly fit into the appropriate shoe type for him or her. To do this they go through a four step process to ensure proper fit and support.

Owner Matt Ford says, "We want to provide riders with everything they need to maximize their riding experience. That goes far beyond gear and includes classes, rides, clubs, and involvement in the racing and touring communities."
