I've created a theme at:


That I call my "default" theme with some base styles, that inherit from Magento Blank as it's parent. Default just has universal styles that all of my other themes will use.

In the default theme, I'm using:


An _extend.less file to extend from the parent Magento Blank theme.

Now, I also have different stores in Magento, so building off of the default theme, I have:



And I'm seeing that if I put in an _extend.less into


That doesn't appear to be working. The shop1 theme is using default as it's parent, and is correctly inheriting the styles of default. However, shop1 is not being extended by any customizations that I'm placing into it's _extend.less file. Am I doing something wrong here?

Thank you.
