(A/N: To prevent the story from getting boring for both of us, workdays will be consolidated and highlights given.)
The Price Markup is 25% this week.
Perk points are used to purchase Faster Checkouts.
Week 3, Day 2
Pete takes care of Simon’s needs and then his own before opening the store.
He keeps an eye on another potentially sticky-fingered Sim.
Sims are now taking longer to decide if they want to buy something.
It took Pete 10 hours to sell his 10 items today.
Pete & Simon are exhausted from the long day and take a nap before doing anything else.
“No scratching the furniture, Simon!”
Hopefully, Simon will be broken of this bad habit before he finds a forever home.

Week 3, Day 3
Pete needs all the help he can get!
(A/N: He’s always exhausted and needing fun so I got these potions so he can open the store in a timely manner.)
The dots finally connect for Simon. Hooray!
“Good job, Simon!”
GASP! Hakim Ichmawin is bold and swipes a food dish with disregard for Pete and the others standing nearby.
(A/N: This disappointed me. None of the other Sims reacted/stopped the swiping from happening which is something they would have done if the klepto Sim controlled by us did this very thing. I expected to at least see the reaction Sims give when another shouts forbidden words in front of them.)
Pete firmly asks Hakim Ichmawin to leave the store.
Today it took 12 hours to sell his inventory of 10 items.

Week 3, Day 4
Pete notices that the thief has been hired as a paparazzi and hopes this will keep his focus turned elsewhere.
It does! Hakim never entered the store.
It took 10 hours to sell 10 items.
Pete is trying not to get discouraged by how little he’s making at the store.
(A/N: At 25% Price Markup, Pete brings home §204 a day if he sells all 10 items. Thank goodness he has a garden because that is where a good bit of his weekly earning comes from! Without that, he most likely couldn’t afford a home for a long time!)
