Just in time for the holiday season, Wolverine Worldwide and Locally are partnering to launch Reserve Online Pay In Store (ROPIS) transactions at Wolverine’s branded retail stores, including under the Merrell, Saucony and Sperry names. Between all three brands, Locally will enable more than 100 stores to begin accepting ROPIS transactions. These types of transactions bridge the gap between online and offline shopping and represent an emerging trend in consumer behavior.
The WWW brand stores will be offering new features that post-Covid shoppers have come to expect from both retailers and brands. Locally’s technology makes it effortless for shoppers to find what they need online and pick it up nearby. Locally’s goal is to help shoppers find their favorite brands, like Merrell, Saucony, and Sperry in-stock at a local store.
Locally’s technology allows shoppers to browse store stock through the store locator pages. It also permits shoppers to drop inventory into their buy it Locally shopping cart and communicate directly with stores to arrange purchase and pick up.
We are excited to announce this new venture with Wolverine Worldwide’s brand stores. Go check out the new technology on Merrell.com, Saucony.com and Sperry.com to get your holiday shopping done early this year!

Locally was founded in 2014 in anticipation of changes in consumer behavior. We saw that shoppers were increasingly turning to internet-connected devices for decision making and that increasingly nearby stores, the brands they carry, and their on-hand inventory were invisible to shoppers. So we built a solution. Today, we help thousands of stores present their selection to nearby shoppers using ecommerce tactics and we provide users with novel last-mile fulfillment options like in-store pickup and same-day delivery.
