Week 1, Day 2
While Pete sleeps, the stray cats and dogs make themselves at home.
He opens the store at 8 am and begins greeting potential customers.
Pete’s not sure how he feels about a celebrity hanging about and bringing paparazzi & fans with him. Hopefully, it will drive up sales!
Another sale is pending … Pete! Stop snapping pics … you have a customer waiting! A celebrity customer.
As soon as he heads toward Octavia, another customer is ready!
Pete! Stop being a fanboy! You have a young customer waiting with money in hand.
Neat! Thorne stopped being a “Socializer” and became a “Customer” at some point.
Jacques sure took his sweet time deciding what he wanted to buy.
This made Pete laugh! Mayor Whiskers acts like the cat tree is still there.
7 of his 8 items sold & he’s been open for FOUR HOURS. I attempted to restock so he could stay open longer. Customers crowded around the lone item on display and the strays “entertained” them as well.
Pete placed two items and then another sale needed to be rung up.
Look! More magical cats!! LOL
Don bought the pet toybox.
(A/N: This made me laugh and think silly thoughts as to why he would need it.)
It’s difficult to restock while the store is open because as soon as an item is placed, a customer wants it.
Pete ran out of stock!
This aggressive dog kept customers busy so Pete could try to restock again.
Pete isn’t sure having animals IN the store is a good idea or not!
He decides to close the door at 4 pm. This lady is tense and he’s thinking she won’t buy anything after all. Then Pete see’s a celebrity shopper ready to buy. This guy will be his last sale of the day!!
By the time Dustin bought the bag of pet food, it was close to 4:30. Not quite 9 hours but Pete still feels he did pretty well for a grand opening!
He was able to re-stock 4 items while the store was open.
2 Bags of Cat Food
2 Food Bowls
2 Litter Boxes
1 Small Pet Bed
1 Large Pet Bed
1 Scratching Post
1 Cat Tree DeBox
Price Markup: 5%
Pete refilled the food bowls but is a bit concerned by the dogs trying to hog the food.
Then two animals got into a fight. He was worried it was the cat, but turns out it was the aggressive little dog.
On his way to the bathroom, Pete starts to re-think the idea of letting animals roam inside. They might hinder sales!
He stocked the store, ate salad and went to bed around 11:30 pm. He’s beginning to realize the life of a shopkeeper is going to be filled with long days!
(A/N: From this point forward, I’ll do a summary of sales at the end instead of a screenshot per sale. I mainly did it because … 1st day!)
