After being gone for quite some time due to computer issues, I feel like I should switch categories, just to start fresh in a way. I just do not know what to switch to. I'm looking for something that will be fairly easy to restock in, yet decently profitable.

Some Info About My Shop:
- Currently Petpets
- Size 169
- Items Stocked : 389 · Free Space : 456
- 413,885np on hand
- Less than 1k in bank.

Any opinions would be great happy

I have decided to go luck/training, but I still have a few questions.

- Other than Jellyneo, where can I find item lists for the category?
- Are Neggs a part of this category?
- Not being a part of a mall, how should I price my items? So far I've been mimicking a mall, but I know I'm pricing a little too high. I was thinking about reducing my prices by 5-10% and seeing if I get any sales that way.

Bailey!! happy I remember you being in the Playground in the old days, think you were pregnant when you went on hiatus? Anyhow, welcome back! I'll try my best to answer your questions:

I would honestly go through some of the big malls and check out their training shops for inspiration, and make a JN wishlist based on what you find. Look under codestones, special, goodie bags, crackers, WC pieces, etc. happy

In the Nursery: no; in other malls: yes. However, I do think you could get away with several stat-raising Neggs such as Armoured Neggs as they are used towards training happy

I would price a little high in Training because if you're too cheap, you sell out instantly compared to other categories. Stock bulk, and price accordingly based on your volume stocked, wiz group, and if you're in a mall, how many NB Ad/Mall/etc. hits you'd be getting.

Yeah, it's been a few months. I had to leave due to computer issues. My laptop was in the shop and we never got it back. We've got a new laptop so I came back Grin I'm still pregnant, but about to pop any day now.

Thanks for the answers Grin They are really helpful Grin
