Shop Tycoon – FREE DOWNLOAD
Shop Tycoon is a store management simulator, in which the player has to build a store, furnish it, hire employees, order goods, set prices, place the ordered goods, and finally increase the popularity of the store and the customer base and count profits, expand his venture, achieve new goals and milestones or overcome various challenges.
BUILD A STORE
Put up walls and floors, put in doors and windows. Do not forget to separate the shopping space from the warehouse space, as the involuntary scattering of goods across the entire store space can significantly make it difficult for customers to shop in your store.
To be able to sell goods, you need refrigerators and shelves that will allow customers to choose the desired goods. Cash registers will also be useful, where the employee will be able to scan the goods and collect the payment from the customer, unless it is a self-service checkout – then the cashier will not be needed, but additional precautions will be helpful so that no one appropriates your goods, therefore industrial cameras and security will help keep the store in good order.
Your store needs manpower (even if it’s an autonomous store), so you need people to unpack the goods, put them on shelves, clean the store, handle cash registers and keep order. Each potential employee has their own skills and bonuses that allow them to work better in a given environment (e.g. by checking out products at the cash register), but may be less successful in some other field. You can choose from the list of proposed candidates who, after being hired, will constantly improve their effectiveness, depending on the current job.
You can choose from several wholesalers that specialize in various categories of material goods, differ in price depending on the demand and supply in the game world, have their own special offers and price reductions. Long-term ordering in one and the same warehouse will favor more fruitful offers. Shop Tycoon at this point only focuses on items from the food industry, so you can choose from a variety of fruits, vegetables, processed items and so on, with some of them divided into different classes, for example: barn eggs or free-range chicken eggs.
It will be up to you what margin the customer will pay for the ordered goods, but you have to take into account the consequences when the price is too high, as this may negatively affect the reputation of the store, and thus the interest of potential customers in shopping in your store.
PLACE THE GOODS
After ordering the goods, it would be nice to let customers buy it, so you can assign a specific product to a specific “container” and the employees will take care of the rest. Remember to use refrigerators, otherwise food that needs cooling can spoil quickly!
Nothing else prevents you from opening a store, constantly developing it, taking care of customer feedback, gaining popularity and counting banknotes on your desk. I mean, maybe not literally – they will count themselves somewhere in the interface.
If you’ve read up to this point, I love you!
