AC:CF Tom Nook's Store Guide
In Animal Crossing: City Folk, the only shop in town belongs to Tom Nook. When you first begin playing the game, Tom Nook's shop will start off as Nook's Cranny, a small shack with very few different items for sale each day. As time passes, Tom Nook will eventually use his profits to increase the size of his shop to hold more items.

Nook's shop has three upgrades after Nook's Cranny, giving Nook's store a total of 4 different sizes, each which different store hours and stock. After a certain amount of days has passed, when Nook has earned enough bells, he will close down the store for a day to renovate to the next store size.

Tom Nook's Store Upgrades

Store Hours Stage Image
Nook's Cranny 8 AM - 10 PM Beginning shop
Nook'n'Go 7 AM - 1 AM Renovation of Nook's Cranny, at least 8 days after game is started, with at least 30,000 bells worth of purchases
NookWay 8 AM - 10 PM Renovation of Nook 'n' Go, at least 15 days after renovation from Nook's Cranny, with at least 80,000 bells worth of purchases
Nookingtons 9 AM - 9 PM Renovation of NookWay, at least 22 days after the renovation from Nook 'n' Go, with at least 150,000 bells worth of purchases

In AC:GC and AC:WW, it was required for a player from another town to buy an item from Nook's store for it to be upgraded to Nookington's. In AC:CF, a player from another town doesn't have to buy an item from Nook for him to upgrade to Nookington's.

Below is a table showing the number of items in each renovation of Nook's stores.

Store Furniture Tools Flowers Saplings Flooring Wallpaper Stationary Medicine Paint Can
Nook's Cranny 2 3 0 1 1 1 1 1 0
NooknGo 3 3 2 1 1 1 2 1 1
Nookway 5 4 4 2 2 2 4 1 1
Nookingtons 8 6 7 3 3 3 4 1 1


About a month after the upgrade to Nookington's, Nook will start to doubt his service. As each player leaves the shop, Nook will ask them what they look for in a store.

1) Saying "Variety" will make Tom Nook change the store into Nookington's.
2) Saying "Balance" will make Tom Nook change the store into NookWay.
3) Saying "Hours" will make Tom Nook change the store into Nook 'n' Go.
4) Saying "Nothing much" will result in no store change.

After a few days, Nook will think over the votes of each player and make his decision based on which answer received the most votes.

A) If you choose an option that has Nook change to a store other than the one you currently have, Nook will close down for a day to renovate, like normal.
B) If you choose an answer resulting in an change to a store size that you don't want, you will have to wait until next month for Nook to ask you again.
