Should I sell to Nook or Re-Tail?

  • Should I sell to Nook or Re-Tail? Nathan Sabruka

    I noticed that the nice people at Re-Tail buy my used goods/fish/bugs/misc. at a higher price than the Nook crime family will. In past games, however, you needed to have a combined buy/sell amount at Nook's (who is a seedy criminal) shop in order for the store to upgrade.

    Am I losing something or missing out if I buy from Nook's shop and sell to Re-Tail?


  • Always, always sell to Re-Tail. They will always buy your items at a higher price than the Nook stores will.

    While the Nookling store does upgrade in this game, they upgrade only based on the amount you have spent in their store, not the combined buy/sell amount. You can see all shop upgrades here and their requirements on their respective pages, where you can see that the only requirement is Bells spent.

    So you're not missing out on anything if you buy from Nook's and sell to Re-Tail.

  • In previous entries to the Animal Crossing series, the main shop in the village (some variation of Tom Nook's shop) responded to closing time. The music would change very near to closing time (~5 minutes to close) and Nook would eventually ask you to leave. Does anything like this happen in Re-Tail in Animal Crossing: New Leaf?

EDIT: My Re-tail flea market items over almost a week. ...I don't actually sell any of my items on the flea market. I just go in to sell to Reese. Because my flea market is almost always empty, MOST of the time there is a new item being sold by a villager... differently.

  • The Wealthy Town ordinance increases buy/sell prices at Re-Tail and the nooklings best I'm aware, so it's sort of a wash (unless you sell in a town with Wealth and buy in a town without). However do home expansions/public works projects also increase in price, or can Wealthy be used to get those quicker?

  • So, I have done everything I need to to start the DDR session with the goth kids. However, I accidentally sold one of the goth clothes. The guy at the U-Stor-It doesn't seem to have any more to sell and I can't buy them back from the person I sold them to. Because of this, I cannot re-equip the goth clothes. Is there a way to proceed from here?

  • I know that it is possible to create an alias to buy things directly from the shop, as in: dota_shop_force_hotkeys 1 toggleshoppanel shop_nav_to_tab 1 shop_select_itemrow 2 And that's very nice. But is there any way to alias purchasing the suggested items on the configurable pane to the left? For example, it would be very nice if I could do: dota_shop_force_hotkeys 1 toggleshoppanel shop_custom_buy 1 1 // first (starter) section, first item shop_custom_buy 1 2 // first section, second item shop_custom_buy 1 3 // etc... shop_custom_buy 1 4 shop_custom_buy 1 5 shop_custom_buy 1 6

  • In the first Animal Crossing there was a special feature to encourage visiting friend's towns; each town had an item rotation (A B or C I think), and certain items outside of your item rotation would be very hard to find as Nook's either wouldn't sell them or they'd only show as showcase items or something. Is New Leaf similar? If so, how does that work? How do I know which set of items my Nooks' has?

  • One of my villagers mentioned that you can get Re-Tail to buy more than one item at premium prices if you get streetpasses - but I've been unable to get this to happen. I regularly get streetpasses and I've tried checking when I've gotten a non-AC streetpass before loading the game for the day checking the board/shop after having gotten a non-AC streetpass when I've gotten an AC streetpass before loading the game for the day checking the board/shop after having gotten an AC streetpass but there's never more than one item being bought at the premium price. What am I doing wrong? update
