These requirements have been tested and verified by our team. If you would like to contribute, please let us know in the comments!
You will need to buy and sell a total value of 200,000 bells to upgrade the shop. With our test, we bought a total value of 199,200 bells and sold a total value of 800 bells.
We recommend buying at least one item at Nook's Cranny each day.
It has been confirmed that the shop must be open for at least 30 in-game days to be able to upgrade.
If you cannot wait this long, you can time travel, then go back to the current time after they upgrade.
|Relocating the Shop|
|1||Talk to Tom Nook at Resident Services and select Let's talk about infrastructure.|
|2||Select the shop from the list.|
|3||Obtain the moving kit.|
|4||Place the moving kit at your desired location on the island.|
|5||The store will be relocated the next day.|
Resident Services must be upgraded before following the above steps.
Talk to Tom Nook at Resident Services and select Let's talk about infrastructure.
Moving a building will cost you 50,000 Bells, so make sure you have at least that amount with you, before talking to Tom.
Say "I want layout changes". You can now select a building to move; from an island home, up to facilities like the tailors and the museum. Select the shop.
Tom will say a few words and eventually give you a Moving Kit.
After choosing the new area, select the moving kit from your pockets and use it. You will be able to see how it will look like before you confirm.
If you speak to Tom Nook again before choosing the new location, you can cancel relocation. However, once you have decided on a spot, it cannot be cancelled, so be sure to make up your mind 100% beforehand.
The construction site will be put up, and the store will be moved to the new location the next day.
|Unlock Requirements||1||Request for your tent to be built into a house.|
|2||Wait for your house to be built the next day.|
|3||Head to Resident Services.|
|4||Advance through the events involving Tom Nook and Timmy.|
|5||Collect the needed materials.|
|6||Decide where to build Nook's Cranny.|
|Iron Nugget||30 pieces|
You can collect the three types of wood from a tree by hitting it with your axe. On the other hand, you collect iron nuggets by hitting rocks with a shovel.
Note that you can only collect a limited amount of materials from each tree or rock, so make sure to gather materials every day.
Once you've built Nook's Cranny, you'll be allowed to buy four pieces of furniture per day. The furniture will be on display, so you can check how big these actually are.
As with previous games, the number of products on display will increase as the store gets upgraded.
You can also sell items by storing them in the Drop-off Box, which is available 24 hours a day. Once you've placed the items in the box, the money will be transferred to your bank the next morning.
Note that Hot Items, which would normally sell for double in the store, will only sell for their normal price when sold via the box, so use it with caution.
You can also check how much turnips are worth by asking Timmy and Tommy about it at Nook's Cranny.
Turnips can be bought from Daisy Mae on Sunday mornings. However, at the same time, you won't be able to sell turnips at Nook's Cranny on Sundays.
Every day, one or two items can be bought at twice the price. This is a good way to farm money if you have the DIY recipe for that piece of furniture.
Other goods like tools, DIY recipes, and flower seeds can be bought here. Wallpaper and flooring selection also changes each day, so be sure to check that out!
Occasionally, you can also buy clothes from Mabel. She'll be at the square from 5 AM to 10 PM, so make sure to check the square daily.
|Nook's Cranny||Able Sisters|
|Harvey's Island & Photopia||-|
After playing 3 islands, I can safely say that the highest level of Nooks Cranny is based on the amount of $ sold and spent. I started the game on my Switch Lite on April 08. My hubs started his before, yet his just got upgraded 3 game days ago. My store was upgraded to the final version that we know of on April 30, as per bulletin board.(After only 22 days of entire game play).I hadn’t donated more than 15 of anything to the museum. I did have a very high turnip price early. Must be the money!
>>8 This would just depend on how far you get after 30 days that the original Nook's cranny opened. If you don't play a lot you might not have a big house thirty days after. However, you need to have spent or sold a total of 200,000 bells from Nook's Cranny before it upgrades.
