Pick up at store, multiple locations

PowerStore: I am writing a bid for a long time client who wants to take her retail stores online. She has several locations within a 20 mile radius. She will use the inventory feature. So I am wondering, if she wants to offer a free store pick up instead of shipping, and with several locations, is there a custom way to let the customer pick the closest location for pick up? That begs the question though that one store may have it on hand while another won't. If it gets that deep in the weeds, could extra database fields be added for each location's inventory?

Store pick up with multiple locations is very difficult. You raise questions like: If someone orders online and does have it shipped... if multiple locations have it in stock, which inventory is subtracted from?

You would need a separate relational table for inventory at each location.

I've never done this or heard of a customer doing it, so there is no custom method.

It is definitely possible, but I'd say very tricky to pull off with lots of things that need to be accounted for differently than the current system does.

Thanks as always, Ray. I am just trying to anticipate her questions prior to meeting. I mean't that if it doesn't ship, but rather can be picked up and could a customer pick the location? And if the customer can pick the location, could the admin tie inventory to different locations, ie, storeA had inventoryA, storeB has inventoryB, but it is only in play for store pickup. Probably too much in the weeds, but thought I'd ask before my meeting. My thought is that since the stores are relatively close, only one inventory, but if customer could pick the store, and when the order places, if staff could see that order, check with location if on hand, and if not, then get the product to that location... I am probably over-thinking this, but wanted to check to be sure what was workable.
