So, I've been steadily payin' off my loans, but have yet to get any new shops. (i.e. the flower shop, hair salon, cafe, etc) Is there something else I need to be doing? :( I just had my second floor built, if that makes any difference.

No Idea. I just finished my 100k loan yesterday and a new shop is being built already. All the shops are in the shopping arcade if that helps. i think 200k loan opens the coffee shop.

Hrmmm. I paid off my 200k loan too, and I've been playin' since launch day - no new shops. :( There must be another step I'm neglecting...

Yeah, I'm past the mayor points scenario thing too. Do I maybe have to... construct and fully fund something from the town construction list first?

Yes, you do. New shops are unlocked through construction. You have to build something (the cheapest bench will do), then wait 7 days before the shops will appear on the list.

Oh, dang. Well, that'd do it! A week's a long way to wait, but at least now I can get started :'D Thanks tons.

I built absolutely nothing except for my two story house (about to pay off the 298K loan now), and the flower shop opened today anyway.

On the other hand, that's the only new shop I have. I guess I will have to start translating all the choices my secretary is offering me. My Japanese is marginal, so I was putting this off, but no longer, I suppose.

Well, my method is listed on the official site for the "dream house", so other shops may be different.
