Nookling T&T Stores Guide: How to Unlock, Hours, Items

The Nookling T&T Stores in Animal Crossing: New Leaf are where you can purchase new tools, furniture, wallpaper, carpet, fortune cookies, and more!

There are five different stores to upgrade between as you progress in the game each offering new items and different hours of operation. Learn how to unlock every shop and exactly what you can purchase in them.

[the_ad id=”8789″]

Nookling Junction

8AM to 10PM (Early Bird: 6AM, Night Owl: Midnight)

Nookling Junction is the first Nookling store you encounter when first creating your New Leaf town. As the starting store, it has the most basic item offerings for sale and average hours of operation.

For sale you’ll find two furniture, two tools, one fortune cookie, one stationery, and one wrapping paper.

T&T Mart

7AM to Midnight (Early Bird: 6AM, Night Owl: 5AM)

T&T Mart is the second Nookling store, after upgrading from Nookling Junction. It improves on the previous store’s offerings selling more of almost every item category and amazing hours of operation stretching to midnight or 5AM with Night Owl.

Importantly, the catalog machine is unlocked with T&T Mart allowing you to order items which you have previously obtained. The Slingshot, Timer, and Megaphone tools can now appear for sale as well. Medicine can now be purchased too.

[the_ad id=”8789″]

For sale you’ll find three furniture, three tools, two fortune cookies, one stationery, one carpet, one wallpaper, one medicine, and one wrapping paper

How to Unlock T&T Mart:

  • Upgrade your house to a tent after paying the 10,000 bell loan
  • Spend 15,000 bells at Nookling Junction
  • Your town has existed for at least 10 days

Super T&T

9AM to 8PM (Early Bird: 6AM, Night Owl: Midnight)

Super T&T is the third Nookling store, after upgrading from T&T Mart. It further improves on the item offerings selling more furniture than the previous store. However, the hours of operation are significantly scaled back compared to T&T Mart.

Notably, both melody paper and furniture items that attach to your house’s walls begin to appear for sale in Super T&T.

For sale you’ll find four furniture, three tools, two fortune cookies, two stationery, two carpets, two wallpapers, one medicine, one wrapping paper, and one melody paper.

How to Unlock Super T&T:

  • Spend 15,000 bells at T&T Mart
  • T&T Mart and Garden Center have been open for at least 10 days

T.I.Y

10AM to 11PM (Early Bird: 6AM, Night Owl: 3AM)

T.I.Y is the fourth Nookling store, after upgrading from Super T&T. Even more furniture can be purchased than the previous store as well as K.K. Slider’s music albums. Most importantly, the hours of operation improve back to 11PM.

[the_ad id=”8789″]

The Garden Center will merge into the main store building when you upgrade to T.I.Y, rather than remaining a separate building like the previous Garden Center.

For sale you’ll find five furniture, three tools, two fortune cookies, two stationery, two carpets, two wallpapers, one medicine, one wrapping paper, one melody paper, and one K.K. Slider album.

How to Unlock T.I.Y:

  • Spend 50,000 bells at Super T&T
  • Super T&T has been open for at least 21 days

T&T Emporium

9AM to 9PM (Early Bird: 6AM, Night Owl: Midnight)

T&T Emporium is the fifth and final Nookling store in New Leaf, after upgrading from T.I.Y. It’s absolutely massive compared to previous stores with a full three separate floors in the shop.

The first floor has all of the main products, the second floor is completely dedicated to furniture and wallpaper/carpet, and the third floor now has Gracie’s exclusive premium designer items for purchase.

How to Unlock T&T Emporium:

  • Pass the Gracie Fashion Check at least four times
  • Spend 100,000 bells at T.I.Y
  • T.I.Y has been open for at least 30 days

Thanks for this Justin! This really helps a lot! ๐Ÿ˜€ Even though i played the past games and though getting the stores upgraded was easy then…but for New leaf it will be a hassle! XD Thanks again for putting this up! :3

Thank you very much!

I am lucky that nowadays it is no more necessary to have a foreign person have
bought an item at your shop.

Maybe my mathematics broke but how are opening-hours of
“Convenience Store* โ€“ 7AM to 12AM (Early Bird: 6AM, Night Owl: 5AM)”
supposed to be called
“fantastic hours […] and amazing hours of operation”
?
5 hours are not that much?

However, thank you very much, once again; this kind of overview was really something I was looking for.

Its 17hrs not 5

12AM means midnight, not noon. Sorry for the confusion, I’ll update the article.

The bigger one is the best. Sure the hours absolutely suck but hey not that badly. Gracie’s Grace is almost the best part and its funny how upgrading it depends on successful fashion checks. At least it’ll be a challenge cause all it took was like a max of 4 days in previous versions. But in other news, would someone tell me what a melody card is?

Justin
Guest
Justin

I am not 100% certain but my understanding is that Melody Cards are a special type of stationery with music. Kind of like those cards you can buy that play music when you open them!

Sandra

A melody card is card you may write to anyone in your town, and you may customize a tune to go with it. (: when you open one the time you sent is played while reading it. (Via the actual gameplay)

I thought it had the notes so you can change your towns tune??

JamesEamon McIntyre

A Melody Card, as explained by LinandKo, is a stationary item and when you write on it you first can choose a melody to use(by creating one yourself) an then you can write like a letter!

Then when someone opens it it will play the music as you read the letter! ๐Ÿ™‚

So in the last expansion, the emporium….where is the garden shop? Is it gone?

I already did some googling but still could not find an answer.

it kinda sucks that the lesser stores will stay open to 3 and 5 am and then when you get the full upgrade it goes back down to midnight. i’m a night owl so i find this very annoying.

Justin
Guest

Yeah, it was always like that in the previous games. It makes sense but it’s annoying. The Night Owl and Early Bird laws make it slightly better though.

Any news on whether or not we will be able to downgrade to older versions of the nooklings stores after getting the Emporium? Kind of wish that the garden shop was a separate store throughout the iterations. But hey, that superstore looks amazing enough for me to forget about it.

Gracie will come randomly to your town. Around every seven to ten days I believe

I really can’t decide which is the best… I hope there’s a feature that lets you revert to previous installments, like in City Folk. I think I’ll utilize that when summer starts and I can stay up all night. ;P

I love T&T Emporium!

This post has confirmed my town law, it HAS to be Early Bird, I realize that Re-Tail is the ‘main’ shop in New Leaf but I can’t wait ’till 10am for the shop to open!

Thanks for making this post! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I heard from the Animal Crossing Wikia that the 4th store (Home Center*) is called “Nook Bros.” I know it’s not reliable, but it’s worth something. ๐Ÿ™‚

Go to the island in the evening. Catch bugs and butterflies. The blue butterflies are OK value, 2500 each. Some of the tree bugs are worth 10k though. Sharks are valuable too I think.

To get the upgrade ‘T.I.Y’ you have to spend 50,000. Right? Does that include just instore, or does it include the shopping catalog as well???

For all of you who keep saying that the t&t emporium hours stink, the hours aren’t that bad. I just did the math and found that the emporium has more hours than the super t&t does, so at least that’s an upside.

When you spend the 100,000 bells to upgrade to the T&T emporium from T.I.Y, does the money you spend at the garden center contribute to this amount?
