Closing stores

Use the Store Management tool to close a store that is in the open state. When a store is closed, shoppers cannot shop in the store. For example, if you want to perform maintenance on a store, you might want to close the store so that shoppers cannot shop in the store until the maintenance work is complete.


  1. Open the Store Management tool.
  2. In the explorer view filter, click Stores.
    The Stores list view displays, containing a list of the stores that you are authorized to work with.

    You can search for stores to display one or more stores that match your search criteria.

  3. Right-click a store; then click Open store or Close store.
    Note: You can still launch and view a store while it is in the closed state. When you launch a store from the Store Management tool, you are automatically logged in to the store with the same user credentials used in your current Management Center session.
