I saw the following sticker in one of the shops:
I tried looking it up on Naver Dict but there were no results (just 2 example sentences). So what does 쫌 mean? If possible, example sentences in which 쫌 is used would also be of great help!

쫌 is an informal abbreviation of '조금'. A more standard abbreviation of 조금 is 좀, and both of them have the same meaning.
좀 itself has no specific meaning. Here is a list of the possible meanings of 좀:
An abbreviation of 조금
A word that is inserted to make polite a request or asking.
An extreme extent.
How much (in an interrogative sentence).
Its meaning depends on the context, but I guess 쫌 in your picture has the second meaning. Here are possible example sentences:
"좀 그만 해!"
"Stop it, please!"
좀 in this sentence makes a request (for stopping something) more politely. Note that, however, "좀 그만 해" is still less formal than another form of request like "그만 좀 해 주시겠습니까?"
Here is another example:
"아 제발 좀 당첨되었으면!" 복권을 사고 나서 외쳤다.
"Ah, please, I wish I win the lottery!" I shouted after buying a lottery.
The speaker in the sentence asks their luck (to heaven or the law of probability, or something like that), and 좀 in this sentence corresponds to 'please.'
