How To Feng Shui A Retail Store Or Boutique

feng shui retail store

Have you ever walked into a local boutique and felt good energy all around? New York City is rich with boutique stores, specialty stores and tourist shops -- and each has a unique feel or energy.

But which stores have good Feng Shui designed to lead them to success, and which are destined to be next in line for a going-out-of-business-sale? A number of factors in Feng Shui can contribute to a store's success or demise.

Location, location, location

You know how there's always that one store in a strip mall that can't seem to stay in business? Locals may joke that the store's name changes from “Space Available” to “Grand Opening,” seasonally, because that's how often the sign in the window changes.

That location, for whatever reason, has bad chi. Perhaps it's located at the end of a t-intersection,  or perhaps a bridge is crossing the entrance, blocking good chi. Or maybe there's just a history of bad fortune in the space. Identifying the difference between bad and good locations is one reason it's important to call on a Feng Shui consultant before buying or leasing space for a new business.

Window displays

Attractive, brightly colored and moving window displays entice customers to enter a building. There's a reason the old red and white barber shop pole moves; even back then, store owners understood that dynamic displays catch customer's eyes.

Today, flat screens and “digital signage” (screens share information or marketing messages, controlled across a complex computer network) make it possible to create exciting moving images in store windows easily. How often has your attention been attracted to an electronics store with its display of news, sports and action movies playing on an array of television screens? Other retail outlets can use the same techniques.

Low-tech window displays can also be exciting and filled with life chi. That's why mannequins with  lifelike features are also popular in store windows. And at Christmas time? City streets in places like New York and Chicago come to life with animated seasonal displays.

The human connection can make people stop and stare. I personally found myself in a running store the other day because someone was riding a stationary bike in the window that caught my eye and I wanted to see what was going on in the store. Another example of this was a person doing yoga in a window front that sold yoga clothing and made me stop, look and have a desire to go inside.


Lighting should be bright, so customers will easily find what they're looking for. However, it shouldn't be too bright, as this can cause headaches or make customers uncomfortable.


Doors should have the ability to be open. How many times have you tried to open or walk through a door only to find it locked forcing you to stop and open another door? Open all customer facing doors for easy access to your goods or services.


To entice customers to stay awhile and spend their money, a retail location should be decorated in pleasing colors drawn from nature. Store owners can employ the five-elemental color cycle for even better fortune.


Soothing music or energetic tunes that reach a store's target demographic also help customers feel at home and encourage them to buy. The pleasant greetings of sales staff add to a stores auditory ambiance.

In-store displays

Often called “merchandising,” in-store displays add to the Feng Shui of a retail establishment. Displays should be clean, but busy -- exciting, but not cluttered.  Product displays can be enhanced with living chi, like plants and flowers.

Use the Ba Gua

Retailers can also use the Ba Gua to merchandise a store, placing clothing of particular colors in specific segments. The cash register should be in the Wealth or Helpful People corner,  in the back left or back right of the store. This also puts the cashier in the command position in relation to shoppers -- and, from a practical standpoint, permits him to keep an eye on the entire store.

The best color for a cash register, like a front door, should be green or red, although you can also use beige or tan, since these colors all carry strong life chi.

Next time you walk into your favorite store, take note of the sights, smells, sounds, displays and the location of merchandise. Is the Feng Shui good? Does the store make you want to buy? It's fun to look around and see Feng Shui in use all around us.

If you believe that you’re not living up to your true potential. All that is about to change.

Would you like me to help you clear your blockages FOR you?

Let me know if this sounds like you.

You don’t really KNOW why you are here or what you came here to do and you FEEL like you are not working in alignment with your TRUE POTENTIAL.

You are not living exactly where you want to live and not making the exact amount of money that you want each and every month.

You feel like you are drifting through life and not feeling truly alive or excited to wake up and confront the day.

You are not IN your desired RELATIONSHIP and are manifesting conflict and drama with others.

You are not 100% happy with your physical body and health.

You don’t feel 100% CONFIDENT in yourself and this is affecting every area of your life.

You don’t KNOW what action you should take that will produce real results or how to take all areas of your life to the next level. As a result, you feel frustrated and have self-doubt, anxiety and fear.

You can’t really TALK about these things with the people around you. And you desire a dedicated mentor to help you gain clarity, focus and massive action towards living a life you love and know you’re physically capable of achieving.

You KNOW you have some blockages in your business, career or personal life but you are not SURE how to clear them.

You are already relatively successful in some areas but you KNOW you can do a LOT more than what you are currently doing.

I’m focused on empowering a very small group of people via one on one mentoring over the next few weeks.

I truly believe that the only way to consistently achieve success and solve the problem of NOT getting your desired results is to have a mentor to keep you accountable.

If you have the opportunity to work one on one with a true mentor, don’t hesitate, commit and go ALL in.

I’ve had the amazing good fortune to work with many high profile, highly influential and high-net worth individuals over the last 10 years to help them break through their blockages into manifesting what is truly possible for them.

From actors, actresses, singers, song-writers, hedge fund managers, investment bankers, etc..

To stay-at-home Mom’s, small business owners, entrepreneurs, urban apartment dwellers and those focused on UP LEVELING their health, wealth, relationships, well-being and environment.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter your occupation, financial net worth, location or background.

If you’re not living up to your true potential, there is a gap that is impacting all areas of your life.

And there are specific actions that can empower you and your energy to operate from a place of confidence and certainty.

When you are operating from a place of personal power, you make different choices, you take different actions and you get different results. Results that matter to you. Results that you can measure.

What is left is freedom, choices, possibilities and opportunities.

And with that comes a whole new way to experience life.

Imagine waking in the morning with a sense of peace, purpose and prosperity. And take that with you throughout your day.

Where you flow freely towards your goals so that accomplishing them becomes effortless.
