A front-to-back central spine may be used for narrow stores. it may be uninterrupted path or may include a central island that customers walk around.
Loop: Convenient and effective
For stores with a central display zone and perimeter zones. While walking along the loop customers will have access to perimeter zone and central islands.

circulation paths cross spaces where an event takes place. the event could be a focal display or juncture where the space expands
