E-commerce company opening bricks-and-mortar location, you don’t hear that everyday

Shopify Inc is a Canadian e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario that offers complete ecommerce solutions that empowers ambitious entrepreneurs all over the world, whether they sell online, on social media, in store or even out of your car or truck, they have you covered.

Their product and service offerings allow entrepreneurs to organize your products, customize your storefront, accept credit card payments, track and respond to orders — all with a few clicks of the mouse.

There are over 600,000 businesses that have been empowered by Shopfiy and with over 1,000,000 active users and over $63 B USD sold on its platform, the results speak for themselves.

Shopify Inc. continues to enhance its users experience with their platform and one only needs to visit their “What’s New at Shopify” blog to see event announcements and loads of feature updates and launches for merchants to keep you up to date and help with growing your business.

Well it was only a matter of time that an e-commerce company that helps online and bricks-and-mortar merchants would branch out with its own bricks-and-mortar location and that is what Shopify Inc. is doing.  The company recently announced it will open its first bricks-and-mortar location in downtown Los Angeles, California later this year at ROW DTLA, a historic district composed of 6 iconic buildings filled with 100 unique shops, 15 restaurants and 1.3M square feet of creative offices.  Sounds like a good fit for Spotify.

Many are asking why the Ottawa-based company skipped a location in Canada and chose its first location in Los Angeles.  Well, that decision was easy as the area is home to a large number of Shopify merchants who can benefit from the services and community that the space will provide.

Shopify’s chief operating officer, Harley Finkelstein did not say what the company will offer at this location, but hinted that may it may be used to host events or open the space to merchants to sell their products for a few days at a time.  I guess we will find out later this year.
