Local Inventory Ads allow you to showcase your products and store information to nearby shoppers searching with Google. When shoppers click an ad that shows your local product they arrive on your local storefront. Shoppers use the local storefront to view in-store inventory, get store hours, get directions to your stores, and more.
Pay only when a user clicks on your local inventory ad, just like the way standard Shopping ads are charged. This means that you’re only charged when a user expresses interest in your product. Let’s look at a list of benefits to local inventory ads!
Promote your in-store inventory
Let local shoppers know that your store has the products they’re looking for, as they search on Google.
Bring your local store online
Use the Google-hosted local storefront or your own website with the merchant-hosted local storefront feature as a robust, digital local storefront experience.

Some requirements it is worth noting for using local inventory ads include that a business must have local brick and mortar business locations. The business must be fully open to the public meaning that there are not club or membership restrictions to entering the physical store or viewing any products for sale. Lastly, the business ad cannot violate Google’s Shopping Ad Content Policies such as adult-only content.
