Animal Crossing: New Horizons Shopping Plaza - How to build every shop on Harv's Island

Easy access to the most sought after vendors!

One of the most exciting returning features in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the shopping plaza on Harv’s Island.

With his entrepreneurial streak taking a turn away from wedding photography, Harv has repurposed his island into the premier shopping destination in your area. Talk about an out of town mall!

Where there used to be a regular rotation of special vendor visitors to your island home, you can now set up permanent stalls for Kicks, Sahara, Leif, and even the mischievous Redd.

When each of the vendors are not at their usual posts outside of Town Hall, they can be found here, if you can cover their startup costs that is!

What’s more, newlyweds Reese and Cyrus will customise furniture at their workshop, while you can also have your fortune read by Katrina the mystical cat.

Finally, it's official: Tortimer is alive and kicking. You can build a little hut for the elderly tortoise to easily access your home storage to feed Cyrus customization jobs without having to fill up your inventory beforehand.

Here’s everything you can do in Harv’s Shopping Plaza in Animal Crossing New Horizons, and what you need to establish all of the new shops!

While you're adding to your island amenities, here's where to find Brewster and unlock The Roost cafe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

How to establish stalls in Harv’s shopping plaza in Animal Crossing New Horizons

Getting starting with Harv's shopping plaza co-op is easy. Simply head to the Airport and ask Orville to set up a trip to the island.

Next, take the right-hand road next to Harv's shack to get to the plaza.

Here, Harv has enlisted the help of your old friend Lloid to build the shops. Lloid's friends - all also called Lloid - need 100,000 bells each to complete work on each stall.

Bear in mind though, that you can only build one shop in the shopping plaza per day. Be sure to prioritise the shops you're most interested in, so you're not waiting nearly a week to see what's what!

I'd suggest starting with Leif, since he can get you started on the new crop farming feature. Otherwise, maybe check out Redd's new inventory, or the brand-new fortune and customization shops.

After you've stumped up the cash and given to the stumpy Gyroid, you chosen shop will open the next day.

We've listed which shop is which below. Unlike Nook's Cranny and the Able Sisters, the shops on Harv's Island update their inventory every week, not every day.
