Not only for a happy dwelling but also for a hassle free business environment Vastu Shastra recommends some simple tips for constructing the shops.
Shops, which have the roads and entrances in the north and the east sides, flourish easily.
Shops with roads and entrances in the south-west and the north-west direction flourish for 10 to 20 years. However, with the passage of time, there is a decline. This prediction has become true in case of 70% of such shops. There are 30% exceptions because other factors are helping in overcoming this defect.
The show cases or racks should be placed in the south and the west part of the shop. The counter should be situated to the south-east, the south-west or the west sides of the south direction of the shop or in the north-west direction of the shop. However, it should never be in the north or the northeast corner. Maximum furniture should be wooden.
The customer should be facing the west or the south direction whereas the owner should sit facing the east or the north.
Water pitcher should be placed in the north-east corner. The main meter, switch board etc should be in the southeast corner. There should be no cross beams in the shop. It is necessary to have a threshold to the shop.
The cash counter of the shop should be near to the south wall. It should open towards the north or it should be in the west direction opening towards the east.
Goods to be sold quickly and should be kept in the north-west corner of the north side. It is expected to get sure profits. The counter in the shop should be at right angles. There should be no oblique or round cut present in the shop.
Shops dealing in books, paper or educational goods do good business if located in the east. For professional shops, the direction north is good.
Shops dealing in ladies requirements like jewellery, dress material, cosmetics etc. flourish in the south-east corner of the south direction or even in the south direction. However, the main entrance of these shops should not be in the south-west corner.
Hotels, restaurants, sweetmeat and electric goods shops do roaring business in the south-east corner of the east side. On the other hand shops dealing in black coloured goods like coal, tyres, iron etc. do good business in the south direction. The entrance, however, should not be in the south-west direction. Cloth, departmental stores etc. flourish in the east side. Shops dealing in agricultural goods, seeds, pipes etc. flourish in the west. Showrooms of vehicles flourish in the east and the north-west direction of the west side.
