I'd suggest getting in touch with the theme developer first off, it would be a great update for them if they were to make the theme work with Jigoshop.
:-) That is akin to me asking you to get in touch with the plugin developer saying "it would be a great update for them if they were to make the plugin work with Suffusion"!

I have built support for specific plugins before - notably for "Now Reading", which is a plugin I personally use and BuddyPress (and a lot of associated plugins) which others use. The trouble is that a lot of plugins are built on a single case basis, assuming one sidebar and making them work with any other layout needs effort. E.g. What would happen if somebody were to extend Twenty Ten or Twenty Eleven to have 2 sidebars, one on the left and one on the right? That would break your plugin's layout right away.

Anyway, the solution to your question is provided by Jeff to your post on the forum: http://jigoshop.com/user-guide/theming-with-jigoshop/. In that link you will notice this:
If you want to customise these templates you can do so (in an upgrade-safe manner) by copying the files into your theme folder, or copying the files into a folder called jigoshop inside your theme folder.
That is your starting point, except that instead of "copying the files into a folder called jigoshop inside your theme folder", try "copying the files into a folder called jigoshop inside your child theme folder". Then look at the instructions above (pasted by Drake) regarding the template structure. That should take care of things.

Alternatively you can try following the instructions on using template hooks (also in the article linked above) within Jigoshop.

Sorry ! I thought I updated the post. Actually I was able to solve the issue on the same day

There is no problem with Jigoshop now

Any easy way in non-programmer lay terms to end the Sidebar content shifting to the bottom of the Main Content page, seemingly not due to plugins? Many thanks.

@Nileda explain your problem a bit more.

This is usually caused either by a faulty plugin or incorrect coding by you on a page or post with unclosed tags.

Thanks, Colin.
1° When Sidebar 1 was on the right, the widgets were systematically shifted to the bottom of the Main Content page.
2° I moved Sidebar 1 on the left, then the widgets superposed (the first post and followings of) the Main Content page.
3° Then I tried to re-move Sidebar 1 on the right but it stayed on the left.
4° Do you recommend any unclosed/unbalanced tags plugin ?

It could be any plugin causing the problem so disable them all to see if the problem goes away. If it does re-enable one at a time until the site breaks then you know the problem one.

As to unclosed tags that is don to you to check the HTML markup of the page that has the issue.

Post your url (forum rule #6).

I have disabled and re-enabled all plugins, that’s what I meant on December 28 10 :42 by «seemingly not due to plugins ».
The URL (NSFW) is http://exquisiteslave.com.
I have moved some widgets to the Widgets Above Header and to the Widget Area above Footer areas but, although I have selected the No Sidebars option, a sidebar is still on the right and I am unable to move any widget into it.
I am preoccupied by the June 22 announcement (Suffusion Not Available Any More) and comforted by your August 17 on checking compatibility. It would be nice to have a regular communication from Sayontan Sinha on this essential issue other than the Suffusion Shortcodes plugin that is not user friendly for non-programmers.
I suppose that the Suffusion theme was created with some kind of business model.

Thank you, Colin, for your cooperation.

I can't see what your problem is as it isn't clear which widgets should be where. It appears that you have four widget areas above your posts.

If you don't want any sidebars you need to change the template assignment in the 'Additional Options for Suffusion' on the edit page or change the default layout to no sidebars.

I changed the Default Sidebar Layout to No (Zero) Sidebars but keep getting a sidebar on the right.
