How to Unlock Kicks Store

ACNH - Kicks Intro.png

  1. Unlock Nook's Cranny
  2. After the 3rd Visit from Mabel, choose a location for her shop
  3. Unlock the Able Sisters' Shop
  4. Afterward, Kicks will come to the Plaze once a week (the day is random)

Kicks doesn't open his own store

Fans of Animal Crossing: New Leaf will remember that Kicks opened his own store next to the Able Sisters. However, in New Horizons, Kicks will drop by your island as a visitor, but at the present, it would appear as though there is no way for him to open his standalone own store.

Visits after unlocking the Able Sisters Shop

After you unlock the Able Sister's Shop, Kicks will sometimes appear in front of the Resident Services building. He won't show up before then, so don't expect to see him around until the Able Sisters have their own store up and running!

Comes once a week

Translation: I'll be here once a week, so see you around, chum.

Kicks will comes to visit your island once a week. The day that he comes will be random, but he will definitely turn up eventually, so just keep waiting.
