I can confirm that your site is loading VERY slowly.

10.2 seconds to load (on desktop), is really bad. 

29.6 seconds to load (on mobile), is essentially a broken site. 

 

You could try using some apps to fix things, but I can't make any guarantees on if they'll work:

 

Flash Page Speed Optimization: https://apps.shopify.com/pagespeed-javascript

Booster Page Speed Otimizer: https://apps.shopify.com/page-speed-optimizer 
Pasilobos Turbo Speed Booster: https://apps.shopify.com/pasilobus-turbo 

Tiny SEO: https://apps.shopify.com/smart-image-optimizer 

 

You should seriously consider picking a new theme and re-building the site. Get rid of any apps that aren't 100% necessary, and optimize all of your images before re-uploading them to Shopify. 

 

I apologize if I sound harsh here, but this is the actual worst loading speeds I've ever seen on a Shopify store. I'm not sure how it's gotten this bad (I reckon it's probably a combination of things; poor theme, too many apps, coding edits gone wrong, and unoptimized images) ... but you definitely need to make some changes, because you can't expect customers to wait 10-30 seconds for the homepage to load. You're going to lose so many people before the site even loads if you don't change anything. 

 

If you need help with rebuilding things, I would be happy to take on this project. You can view my website and email in the signature of this post, if you're interested. Otherwise, I would recommend hiring someone from the official Shopify Partners directory, here:
