I created a store, selected suppliers and sent a request to each of them to purchase products. When will the goods arrive at my store's warehouse?

Resources will be received the next day, after recalculating the game situation.

Today I opened shops, bought food, but there are no workers. When will they appear?

Workers will not appear on their own - they must be hired. To do this, open your store and click on the "Employees and Salary" link. In the window that opens, select the number of employees you need and set the salary for them.

Just opened my first store. How much is approximately required for one day during the first opening hours of the store?

It's better to order a little. If the product is sold, then the next day you can order more of it. The volume of sales depends on the city, region, store size, number of departments, product, its quality, price, on the market situation, on the popularity of the store ... Therefore, from the very beginning of creating a store, it is better to order goods in small batches (for example, in the amount of 20-30 % of the sales volume of this product from not the top stores according to the sales report for your area of ​​the city), gradually increasing them. Naturally, provided that your sales in the store increase.

What determines the number of sales in the store?

The number of sales depends on the number of store visitors, prices, product quality and brand, and store performance.

Is it possible to buy goods of different qualities for sale separately to poor and rich buyers?

In the warehouse of the store, the purchased goods are mixed and the product is obtained with weighted average quality, brand and price. An exception is made for goods released under a brand name or under a franchise agreement. For example, if you have selected several suppliers of milk, and ordered regular "Milk" (icon - milk in a bottle) and produced under the trademark "Pasteurized milk" (icon - milk in a carton bag), then such goods are not mixed in the store's warehouse.

If I sell compatible products (for example, bread and milk) or incompatible (bread and cars) in the same store, does something change?

All other things being equal, specialized (single-department) stores perform better. But, in principle, good performance can be found in a store with many departments and many products sold. Much also depends on the size of the retail space.

How to find out what is the maximum volume of products that city dwellers can buy from me?

The market volume can be found by clicking "Marketing report" -> "Trade in cities".

When do you need to increase (decrease) the area of the store?

An increase in store area increases traffic and improves the level of service. But the more visitors, the more sellers you need. The level of service depends on the number of sellers, their qualifications and the area of the store. It also depends on the number of departments in the store: the fewer of them, the larger the area of the department - accordingly, the higher the level of service.

The game writes that there are few sellers in the store and it is necessary to increase their number. And right there at the bottom it is written that there may be too many sellers in the store. What does it mean?

Everything is very simple. There may be few sellers to serve visitors, but a lot for the store manager to handle them.

Is it possible somehow to transport the products from the pig farm to the store? That is, without the process of buying and selling yourself?

The pig farm sells products at a price you set - either to the warehouse, or to the factory, or to the store. Yours or other companies. There are no other ways in the game.

I hired sellers, bought a product, but still nothing is for sale. Why?

A very common mistake of a beginner is that a product of such quality, brand or value is purchased at the store that it is not possible to sell it (and even more so to sell it at a profit). We advise you to pay attention to the average figures for the city when choosing suppliers of goods. It is also possible that you have chosen a very small market and / or the competition is too high (for example, the sedan market in small European cities)
