The image below is our stock in the back-end, using Shopify's locations: What Shopify currently does is display the TOTAL (red circle) value. We want to be able to show the individual values to our customers (blue box). Why? If one store is OUT of stock, customers need to be aware that their shipping may take longer and that they can't just walk-in and pick it up on the day. With the combined stock (left), the customers don't know where that stock is. We want to be able to show stock by location (right) to make this clear. It seems like an easy fix. But unfortunately Liquid doesn't support it, only a combined total. We are currently using variant.inventory_quantity to display the stock. I also looked into the product's JSON and it only displays a total quantity. I have talked to Shopify support twice about the situation and they have suggested that it is a development issue. That it is possible and that I should reach out to the theme developer or get someone to develop it for us. I actually reached out to Shopify Experts about the issue and the general consensus I got is: it's not possible. Because Shopify does not give access to the inventory numbers by location. But they exist, at least on Shopify's end. I am here because I was told by Shopify Support (via call) that this is the way to reach out to Shopify Developers and get help with this functionality. So... help? Please! (And while i am here: petition to account for shipping geographical location when assigning a warehouse. Right now you just set your primary and secondary location and it defaults to the primary and goes to the secondary if it can't fulfill. We would love if we could set it by province, so that orders from Western Canada default to our Vancouver warehouse and orders from Eastern Canada default to our Toronto warehouse.)

I'm trying to display inventory by location on our product pages. I have the location IDs but I am not sure how to link it to a product. When I view the product in "/admin/products.json?ids=" it displays:
But I have it set up to be 1 item at one location (Toronto) and 1 item at another location (Vancouver).
How do I identify inventory by location so I can display it? Am I looking in the wrong place or is there something else I need to do?
