I'm new to Magento. Our plan of creating eCommerce website with Magento CE is like that: we only have one website (one domain), first, we will create one store, name 'handbag', the landing page will be all about handbags. In the near future, we will introduce electornical products and create the second store, name 'electronic'. When we introduce the second store, the landing page will be replaced with a new landing page which has icons to guide customers to select 'handbag' or 'electronic'. And the two stores will have its own theme. My questions are: 1. I know it is easy to create multiple stores, but no idea with how to create different themes for these two stores. 2. How to introduce a new landing page in Magento CE, with which, the users can select 'handbag' or 'electronic' stores, then the total different store theme will show up.

Thanks, Collin

1. I know it is easy to create multiple stores, but no idea with how to create different themes for these two stores

I hope that you have configure your theme for one store. now you have to change the color combination of different store. so you have to create new theme.

Suppose

app                              Skin
--design                         --design
  --Frontend                       --Frontend
    --default                        --default
      --store1theme                     --store1theme  

Now you want to change only css then copy and paste the theme folder skin folder like below

app                              Skin
--design                         --design
  --Frontend                       --Frontend
    --default                        --default
      --store1theme                     --store1theme
                                        --store2theme 

now go to your admin panel. System >> Configuration >> Design

Now you can see the "Current Configuration Scope" at starting of left menu. just click on that and select your store 1. Then it will redirect to the page. same as below

enter image description here

So this way you can set diff theme for diff store.

2. How to introduce a new landing page in Magento CE,

Its Simple create 2 cms page with same identifier and just the set diff store. Magento has functionality that it will call the pages as per store view automatically. just like below Image
