How to Expand Your Store

You’ll add new stock regularly just by playing. However, if you want your shop to get bigger, you’re going to have to upgrade. You’ll see the option at the top of the screen when you play.

You shouldn’t be spending money on anything other than that, and whenever you get the chance to upgrade you should. It’ll increase the size of your tip jar, so you’re spending money to make money.

Tap Don’t Swipe

You don’t need to swipe the money into the right drawer of the cash register. Instead just tap on the notes that the customers give you and the game will automatically put them in the right place.

This can really speed up things like the challenge levels, where you’ve got a set amount of time to serve a customer. Check the numbers on the top of the till and you’ll see how much change they need, saving you the math.

How to Deal With VIPs

The VIPs are the most important customers that are going to set foot in your store. You’ll need to watch a video to serve them, but – and we can’t stress this enough – it’s super worth it.

Most VIPs will pay by card, so simply type the price of the item into the machine and then press the green button. It’s a great idea to triple up the cash you receive from VIPs. It’ll involve watching another video, but give you more money than every other customer in a single day combined.

Stop the Robbers

When someone comes to try and take your hard-earned cash, you’re right to feel a bit peeved. But how do you stop them, since they’ve got a gun and you’ve got a till? Well, you set off the alarm.

When a thief comes into the store, your hand will move along the bottom of the counter. You need to tap to stop it when it’s below the red button. Press that, the alarm goes off and you’ll not lose a thing.

Make Some Change

If you don’t have the right coins or notes to give change to your customers, you’re going to have to make some. You can do that by breaking up larger bills into smaller denominations.

But, and this is important, you can only shift a note or a coin down by one tier. You can’t turn a $50 bill into 1c coins, for example. Break down your cash in one-step increments and you’ll do just fine.
