    Hi! I just wanna know> Currently, I have a pair of chinese red lanterns hanging on my business area. But I’m not sure it is in the right place. Can you please help and tell me where will be the best area I’m going to place the lantern. Currently, they are hanging inside my business premises and it is infront of a cashier table where my customers pay.
    Anyway, I want to boost my sales. Does a lantern can help it? I’m not sure if it is coincidence or maybe in a wrong spot, I just noticed that the time I hang the lantern, my sales went down.

    Looking forward for your kindness reply. Thanks!
