Announcement Bar

The announcement bar is located at the very top of your page, above your site’s logo and social media icons, giving it a very prominent position on your storefront, catching the eye immediately. It is the perfect place to quickly engage with your customers and make them aware of important information.

Your Announcement bar can work to welcome your customers to your store; let them know of current and upcoming promotions, all helping encourage the customer to make a purchase.
