Would help if it had a few more cart options. Support was limited so ended up with Task-Husky to fix a few bugs and also added some apps to have some flexibility with check out options.

I just fell in love with this store theme the moment i saw it on the demo store. I am building my first store and i wanted a website that reflects the essence of my brand and provide a great experience to my customers. The support theme is amazing, they dont hesitate to really work with you and give you a result that go way beyond expectations, truly inspiring customer service !

Grete Knitwear USA Dec 14, 2018

I've had my store on Shopify for 2+ years now and tried various themes, but the best theme I've ever used is Impulse. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! It has definitely changed the game for us. It feels so professional and has all the functionality we need for our store. Customer service is very responsive, friendly, and fast. Jamie has been great with all our support questions! Totally worth the cost.
