Third: Those stores in which artistic and decorative appearance is the chief consideration.
The first class includes stores of the following types: Jewelry, Haberdashery, Cigar, Shoe, Drygoods, Hardware, Drug, and Stationery. In these the lighting system must be designed to il luminate the particular sections where merchandise is inspected, usually the counters on which goods are displayed and sold. The majority of stores in this class have two rows of counters, one on each side and extending the length of the store. This would, of course, suggest a double row of lighting units. A common error, however, is to place a single row down the center aisle with the inevitable result that the customer casts a shadowon the exact spot where light is most needed, and that the light is too strong where the customer is walking, and too weak where he is looking.
The Shoe store is a representative type of this first general class. Hiere light is required primarily on the floor Where the shoe is tried on, secondarily upon the side walls where the clerk should instantaneously read box labels. Most Shoe stores have two rows of chairs back to back down the center of the store and it is therefore Well to have two rows of units located over the front edge of the chairs so that neither the salesman nor the cus tomer casts a shadow on the shoe.
The second class, those requiring general uniform illumination from the most economical and symmetrical spacing of the out lets, includes Clothing, Fur, Carpet, Furniture, Butcher, Baker, and Grocery stores. A single row of units in the long narrow room is generally satisfactory, although local illumination plays a rather important part in some cases. Carpet stores require special lighting where vertical rug racks are used. In Clothing stores additional lights are often needed in front of wall cases Or mirrors.
