Why Isn't Kicks Showing Up? (Troubleshooting)

ACNH - A player shops at Kicks

Kicks will only visit your island after the Able Sisters Tailor Shop has been opened, so make sure that you have the Able Sisters set up on your island!

He also visits every other week, so you might just need to wait until next week for his visit! If you don't want to wait, you can always time travel!
