I have been reading the various posts on multi-store design, and some of them come lose to helping me design my store. But I would like some feedback on a couple of issues that don’t seem to be addressed.
I have 2 distinct product lines (or divisions): 1) food and 2) stuff (apparel, mugs, etc.)
- 1 website
- 1 shared shopping cart
- 1 shared database
- 1 set of customers (shared customer and order data)
- 1 menu combined structure
- food items would be shipped separately from the stuff items (merchandise)
If I assume that these represent 2 stores:
? How can I have the categories from both show up together in one combined menu?
? How can I have notification emails from one store go to one vendor/manufacturer, and notification emails from the second store go to a different vendor/manufacturer?
Or is there a better way to set this up?
Thanks for your participation. David
