I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Try this. Maybe your template will let you change the orientation via the admin panel.. You may have to re-create the menu on the left instead of top.

OK I've got a vertical menu. Now how do I place it on the left of the site?

That's basically a redesign with responsive sites. Most of the responsive e-commerce templates use top navigation. Changing to left navigation may  run into issues with the product pages.

An alternative would be to switch to another E-Commerce that has left navigation menu templates available like this $139 ZenCart template .

Volusion Support tells me they use Bootstrap so you could try something like SmartMenus.

Here's a Volusion  non-responsive template with left navigation cost $50 -

The only Volusion  responsive menus with left  are  pricey - $895:
