Local - Header, navigation and footer


The header runs across the top of your store containing your logo, navigation, search, account login and cart. This is a static section and cannot be repositioned.


Your store‚Äôs logo provides branding for your site and a clickable link to return to the homepage. 

To ensure your logo displays nicely on retina screens, upload your logo 2x the size. For example, a logo 100px high and 25px wide, should be uploaded at 200px high x 50px wide.

You can upload an inverted (or alternative ) logo to display on darker modals, shown below:
