I think the key here is the fact the store is also your residence. Board the place up, spray paint some warnings on the wood, hole up inside and if any piece of shit decides to break in, deal with them with the proper amount of force. As was stated before, looters in most of these situations won't be a well armed, organized group. They will be looking for targets of opportunity. Do your best to make them go the other way.

I`ve often wondered if a few chalk outlines out the front and some sheep entrails would deter looters?

Add in some police tape and a "You loot we shoot" sign for realisim?

My concern would be that the sheep entrails, chalk outlines, and phrasing of the "YOU LOOT WE SHOOT" would end badly for the owner in the criminal proceedings to follow. Better would be "NO TRESSPASSING, OWNER ARMED" which better fits the "I feared for my life" requirement of most self-defense laws.
