An extension for Oscar to include store locations

Project description Coverage

This is an extension for django-oscar that adds support for stores. It provides:

  • A store locator page using Google maps for geocoding. It also supports using the browser’s location to show the nearest stores.
  • Store detail pages including opening hours
  • Store groups
  • A dashboard for managing stores



GeoDjango is used so a spatial database is required. We recommend PostGIS. Django’s docs include some installation instructions.

Spatialite is another option although it can be tricky to set up. On Ubuntu, you can do the following:

$ sudo apt-get install spatialite-bin libspatialite3 libgeos++-dev libgdal-dev libproj0

The pysqlite python package is also required although it doesn’t support C extensions by default. To work-around this, there are two options:

  1. Download the package, edit setup.cfg to enable C extensions and install:

    $ pip install pysqlite --no-install
    $ vim $VIRTUALENV/build/pysqlite/setup.cfg
    $ pip install pysqlite
  2. Use a custom branch:

    $ pip install git+git://


First, ensure you are using a spatial database and have django-oscar installed.

Install package:

pip install django-oscar-stores

then add stores to INSTALLED_APPS. Now update your root

from import shop
from import application as stores_app
from import application as dashboard_app

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    # basic configuration for Oscar
    url(r'', include(shop.urls)),

    # adds URLs for the dashboard store manager
    url(r'^dashboard/stores/', include(dashboard_app.urls)),

    # adds URLs for overview and detail pages
    url(r'^stores/', include(stores_app.urls)),

You also need to download the GeoIP data files and set GEOIP_PATH to point to the appropriate directory.


  • STORES_GEOGRAPHIC_SRID (default: 3577). This is used for distance calculations. See for more details.
  • STORES_GEODETIC_SRID (default: 4326).


There is sandbox site within the repo which is a sample Oscar project that uses the stores extension. Set this up with:

make sandbox

then fetch the GeoIP files with:

make geoip

This loads a fixture which provides a superuser to test the dashboard with:

username: superuser
password: testing

Run tests with:



django-oscar-stores is released under the permissive New BSD license.
