McArdle’s Florist and Garden Center

Magento Community Edition Site

Project Details

McArdle’s Florist and Garden Center had moved over to Magento a few years ago. Since then, there had been many updates to the platform and they weren’t working with a development firm anymore. Working with Synerge-marketing design and marketing team, we upgraded their Magento installation, adapted the design to be responsive, and modified the checkout/cart to work better for a florist.

Responsive Design

StoreFront Consulting received design files for the large desktop size. We worked with the designer to create the tablet and mobile sizes as well as all of the animations and CSS effects. One of the main challenges for this site was to create areas for the client to modify their own content without breaking the site. Responsive design should allow for multiple elements to be resized without looking strange to the end-user. McArdle’s was trying to get into the mobile market and wanted to make sure that their flower arrangements and bouquets were still as large as possible and allowed the end user a clean path to checkout.

Challenges

  • Seamless upgrade from previous Magento version
  • Bring over custom code that had been done before (in some instances recode to work with newer version)
  • Integrate with Teleflora (RTI) for orders
  • Customize checkout to better work for a florist shop
  • Upgraded Magento CE / Extensions to latest versions
  • Implemented custom responsive design
  • Worked as a consulting resource for Synerge-Marketing
  • Implemented WordPress (fishpig) integration

Continuing work

McArdle’s has become one of our favorite continuing clients. We have been able to work with them over time to keep their site up to date and add or enhance features.
