Top Ten Forgotten Shops of Neopia
NEOPIA CENTRAL - There are a lot of articles in The Neopian Times about the
main stores in Neopia, such as the Bookstore, Food Shop, and Chocolate Factory.
And the two latest ones are in the Lost
Desert: Osiri's Pottery and the Battle Supplies shop. At almost any
time now you could go in there and there would be absolutely nothing (although
once I saw some Cobrall Daggers). The main shops are hard to get anything valuable
unless you're there exactly at the restock time and have a fast connection.
But there are certain shops and places that have generally been forgotten by
the majority of players. They're the ones I go to first. To remind you that
they're still there and that they do restock things that are worth something,
I've made a list of the top ten forgotten shops.
- Usukis are great play toys! They're colourful and pretty, and have plenty
of accessories to use with them. I've read a lot of articles about collectors
items, and Usukis are almost always mentioned in there.
Furniture - A great place to buy things for your NeoHome. If you think
stone to hard, straw too flimsy, and dung too smelly for your NeoHome, this
is the place to go for all your furniture needs. Elegance and casualness can
be found in that shop, and the prices are usually decent enough. For a great
save, buy furniture on Half Price Day.
Island Nippers - How adorable! Here you can buy many different types of
Pirate Petpets with Dubloons. The most sought after Pirate petpet is, of course,
the Krawk. But if you can't get one, that's okay, since there's usually a pretty
wide selection for you to choose from. It's not like you have to buy a 150 Dubloon
Weewoo; a nice Narwhool for only a few Dubloons is fine too, according to your
Slushie Shop - If you ever visit Happy Valley, this is the place
to go. There's a lot of tastyrific favours of slushie there, and colourful ones,
too. I bet your Neopet would be delighted to get one of these as a treat when
he or she is good. The best thing about slushies? They're created so your pet
won't get brain freeze when it drinks one.
Pharmacy - I remember when I used to only go to the Pharmacy to restock
my shop. Now I go to other shops, but this is still a good store. If your pet
ever gets sick, most cures will usually be stocked in here. I wouldn't really
call this one forgotten, but it has experienced a decline in business.
Olde Coffee Shoppe - A nice place to relax after visiting the creative
section of Neopets. There's always a cup of tea or coffee there to drink, and
some food to nibble on while reading your latest issue of The Neopian Times.
Tropical Food Shop - The coolest food in Neopia. Ever since Gadgadsbogen,
I've liked to come here and see the new selection of fruit. There's not only
all that funky fruit, but Maraquan food is sold there too. And even better,
a lot of the old fruits are now Gourmet Foods, so stock up these while you can.
Smoothie Shop - This is a shop that definitely needs more attention.
What could be better than a healthy, tasty, wonderful smoothie on a hot day?
And a few of them are Gourmet Foods too. My favourite things to buy there are
bottles of Krawkade. So far I have Orangeberry Krawkade and Cherryberry Krawkade
(bought today). I almost got a Limeberry Krawkade, but unfortunately my sister
was haggling for me, and it sold just as I was about to get it. To get these
refreshing beverages today, go to the Smoothie Shop!
Dubloon - Remember when this restaurant first came out? I had to practically
fight to get in there, and eventually I'd get thrown out again; and that was
after-hours. Now there's hardly anyone in there. When I went in the daytime,
when the most players would be on, the most I saw in there was five people,
and they left soon after I went in there. I don't understand why everyone stopped
going there. But there's still a lot of food there, although like everything
else on Krawk Island it must be paid for in Dubloons. I don't know if they really
do box up food for you, but it is kind of likely.
To School Shop!!! - My now favourite shop! Although Neopets hasn't started
Neoschools yet, you'd best start stocking up on supplies now to avoid the mad
rush to get things when school does start. There are people that shop here,
I know, but not near as many that should. There are some rare things I see in
there; once I saw a compass, globe, and rainbow notebook there all at once!
Quoting the shopkeeper, "Sending your Neopet to school? Oh... I suggest you
buy as much stuff as possible!!!!" You really should, since they may start
schools in September. I'm trying to get four of everything, since I have four
pets. The only thing I don't advise you to buy there is a Sloth Ruler, since
it's cheaper to buy it in the marketplace. Because there is still no picture
link to the Back To School Shop, you should go to the provided link and bookmark
You don't have to go to all of these shops, just the ones you're interested
in buying from. If we keep going to all of the shops, then there won't be any
more shops that shut down like the Apothecary because they'll have a lot of
business. As for the new shops, wait a few months and then come back to them
because most people will forget about them by then. What to do with the things
you buy? Anything you want. I like to hoard things, which is why my SDB is full
of useless things. So get out there and go to the forgotten stores of Neopia!
