Christine Khuri Fitness Oct 26, 2021

We were looking for a theme solution to host our fitness classes for our eCommerce store during the pandemic, and Impulse was the perfect fit. Flexible, fast, stylish and jam-packed with features to support our unique needs. Our web designer wrote a great review of the theme here: https://exhibea.com/blogs/shopify-web-design-tips-tricks/impulse-by-archetype-themes-shopify-theme-review-2021

WOW!! I have to say that the support has been amazing!! I needed to add a "continue shopping" on my impulse theme store in the product page and cart drawer and within a reasonable time, the team was able to help me add to my store! Thank you so much for your expertise and guidance!!
