SHOPIFY INC. has opened its first-ever phys­i­cal space for pro­vid­ing in-per­son help and sup­port to mer­chants and as­pir­ing en­trepreneurs. Shopify’s new, first-of-it­skind phys­i­cal space for pro­vid­ing in-per­son help, sup­port and train­ing for mer­chants on its com­merce plat­form. Shopify Los An­ge­les is now open, wel­com­ing en­trepreneurs at ROW DTLA in down­town Los An­ge­les. Shopify is putting its many years of ex­pe­ri­ence to work with a per­ma­nent space in LA where busi­ness own­ers can come to both get ad­vice from our knowl­edge­able staff and also to con­nect with other mem­bers of the en­trepreneurial com­mu­nity. LA is the ideal place for this ini­tial in-per­son lo­ca­tion be­cause the area plays host to over 400 top-per­form­ing mer­chants who have each in­di­vid­u­ally earned over $1-mil­lion in GMV. There are 10,000 Shopify mer­chants in LA alone and 80,000 in Cal­i­for­nia.

Sup­port, cus­tomer ser­vice and train­ing are all core to Shopify’s mis­sion of em­pow­er­ing en­trepreneurs ev­ery­where. Shopify’s new space in LA is the in-per­son em­bod­i­ment of the com­pany’s many years of ex­pe­ri­ence build­ing a com­pre­hen­sive net­work of gu­rus, who help mer­chants on-line, via tele­phone and through live chat 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In ad­di­tion to guru sup­port, Shopify has pro­vided in-per­son guid­ance to mer­chants and en­trepreneurs through events in­clud­ing Shop Class, Pur­suit and Re­tail Tour. Shopify’s new home in LA is lo­cated in ROW DTLA, a dy­namic com­mer­cial cen­tre ac­com­mo­dat­ing 100 cu­rated re­tail­ers, res­tau­rants and more. ROW DTLA and down­town LA in gen­eral are rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the type of in­spired en­trepreneur­ship that Shopify makes its mis­sion to en­cour­age and grow.

The space is open to the pub­lic and me­dia to­day start­ing at 10 a.m. PT, with more than 100 en­trepreneurs reg­is­tered for ses­sions in the first day of open­ing.
