Our partnership with Algolia allows us to provide real-time transparency to our shoppers for in-stock items available locally — and that will help drive digitally-initiated retail searches into local purchases.. For us, search and discovery have to be tailored locally.

Before we had Algolia, merchandising on our e-Commerce site was incredibly difficult. It required a lot of developer intervention and parts of code that were hard to handle, and business users could not create a good search experience.

Algolia has really allowed us to optimize internal search. Customers who search are converting at a much higher rate – it’s a huge opportunity for the site. Having a partner who can help us nail that strategy is extremely valuable to us as a business.
