- Watch for the poison arrows – just as it’s not good for your home to be at the end of a straight road that acts as a poison arrow, it is also unwise to locate your shop or office at the end of a long straight corridor in an office building or shopping
mall. If this is the case your office or shop could become a magnet for problems, not money and success. Be sure to put the proper element cures in place if your shop or office faces this problem.
- Is your shop or office deep or shallow? In feng shui we believe that shops or offices that are “deep” are destined to stay in business for a long time while ones that are “shallow” and don’t go back too far will have a shorter life span. Shoppers like to go “deep” into your shop to spend time browsing to find what they want, to feel comfortable with plenty of space and time to look around, so give them that opportunity!
- It’s all about the flow of energy… so remember when designing your retail shop or office layout that the chi must flow freely… yet not too fast. Clean up old cartons or trash to prevent the energy from stagnating and make sure your entry way is clean inviting with your doors opening inward.
