How to Enable/Disable Demo Store Notice in Magento 2

Store demo notice in Magento 2 is a notice bar displayed at the top of the page that notifies customers that their orders will not be fulfilled as it is a demo store. It states:

“This is a demo store. No orders will be fulfilled.”

It may happen that your store is still in a staging environment or is down for maintenance. During this time, you may want to make it clear to the visitors that they cannot place orders.

Also, if you are offering software solutions like Magento 2 extensions, you may offer demo stores that visitors can use to understand the working of your software. Now, in these demo stores, you should make it clear to the visitors that no orders can be placed in demo stores.

In all these above scenarios, you may simply enable or disable demo store notice in Magento 2 as per the requirements.

Enable the demo store notice to let people know that the store is not yet open for business, and remove the demo store notice once your store is ready to accept and process orders by disabling the demo store notice.
