Does Re-Tail force you to leave at closing time?

  • Does Re-Tail force you to leave at closing time? Hyper Anthony

    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?

  • My village's "Re-Tail" closes at 11pm, so I went to visit tonight near closing time. Aside from another villager being present at closing time, nothing out of the ordinary happened. I continued waiting for a few minutes...

    ...and was not asked to leave. So if you have any business to conduct at Re-Tail, so long as you get in the door before closing time, you'll have plenty of time to take care of things. If the developers created any special events for when Re-Tail closes at night, it is not obvious or within the same time interval as previous AC games.

    As a point of note, the lights were out and the shop was closed upon my exit.

  • 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? Thanks!

  • 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?

  • From time to time, a neighbor will ask me to take a message to another player in my Animal Crossing: City Folk game: I have a message I want you to take to him. When I accept the mission, the neighbor will say something like: OK then, would you please tell <name> that I want to talk to him about "wall designs"? Where 'wall designs' changes to whatever it is the neighbor wants to talk about. I can't seem to figure out how to pass this message along. I've tried sending a letter to the other player that includes the key word, but I've never received any kind of acknowledgment

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. I just use this item as one more item I have access to each day. As long as the flea market is not full very often the items continue to pile up until the store is full (I would assume). Which brings

  • I got my son Animal Crossing for the DS for Christmas and he thought it might be fun to name his town after a fish: We didn't notice until he'd invested some time in his new character. After... sounds like it. The only other think I can think of is that he has a character on the Wii version of Animal Crossing and there seems to be a way to move character between them. We're not at home at the moment for me to experiment. Can we console him by promising that he can move his Wii Animal Crossing character to his DS? I guess that's unlikely too. Any suggestions?

  • Does anyone know if it is possible for the animals in Animal Crossing: New Leaf to wear pants? I sent a sailor skirt to one of the animals through the mail, and through some research I found that apparently the animals will change into clothes sent to them about a fifth of the time; however, it was unclear whether this 20% chance was merely applied to shirts or what. Has anyone had success in the endeavor of putting pants onto an animal?

  • been done trading for months, and it's getting bothersome. I didn't want to cancel their assignment to the pit and then re-assign them all since that would take a while, so I would like to just cancel the relevant labor in all of my dwarves so they'll stop moving them so the humans will leave. Which labor is needed for that? I've canceled Animal Hauling, but the wiki only mentions that being used for animal-filled cages. They're still being moved, but that might just be because it takes a while for them to finish their current task. I also thought that it might be Animal Training or Animal

  • On the cover box-art of AC:NL, the boy character has an outfit that has caught my eye. I assumed that the outfit would appear in the Able Sister's shop sooner or later, but it hasn't. Is there a way I can get this outfit?

  • the best way to get a specific neighbor (Melba) to move back into a town in Animal Crossing Wild World. I am willing to buy a second DS, second game, any game-save-copying-hardware, or anything else I need to make this happen (would it be better to find someone online who has the character and try to make it move that way? (I'm not very familiar with the wifi abilities of Wild World)). I just need a trusted method for making this happen. Thank you for your time.
