Things that might help at beginning of your supermarket!


When restocking the delivery payments are as follow:

  • 1-3 items -> 2 €
  • 4-6 items -> 4 €
  • 7-10 items -> 8 €

So its good to buy stuff in 3, 6 or 10 sets to save the most in delivery payments.

When testing about items prices few things came around:

(MP = Market price)

  • MP + 0.1 € = almost none complains
  • MP + 0.15 € = rare occasions of complains
  • MP + <0.15€ = around half or more times complains MP + >1 € = almost none buying the item

So if wanted, items could be sold for 0.1 – 0.2 € higher than market price!

Loans are good way to boost getting the next upgrade or items you need, but its good to notice payment time.
When taking the longest time to pay loan out, if u decide to pay the loan in advance, keep an eye in the payments tab. If you have paid in advance the payments are still there to be paid! This can lead to even higher cost of loan in total.

Other Good to Know

Time is not moving at beginning of morning so you can calmly restock and buy items before opening the shop!

Customers complain after paying that they did not find something and when looking the items on shelf they complain about prices. So it’s good to look around time to time for complains to improve the shop!

The game will sometime inform you if some items are sold without price. But it’s easy to miss, so remember instantly put prices on new items!

Storage is not needed unless you want to keep the streets clean. You can store items in streets like in storage but there’s no guarantees the items stay there. (Still in testing)

There is no penalty, at this game version, for having too long ques to registers. Customers wait until register has more space and meanwhile stay in place or move to a random spot to wait.

It’s good to keep in mind that its almost guaranteed that you need to switch items locations time to time if shooting for visual perfection! (After getting new licenses to items, other need to move make room for new items)

Large items (like toilet paper, Potato…) take a lot of shelf space, so be ready to put multiple shelf for one item to not get people complaining about missing items!

The computer table is movable, so if wanted you can move it elsewhere. Storage room is not taking any furniture in, only boxes! (also furniture in box mode)

Good to notice if you yet haven’t: boxes can be closed again. (default key: C) This is helpful if you are not sure is the box empty, the icon will show if there’s something inside it!

Be careful when throwing boxes in trashcan. There is no warning if the box have items inside still!
