Part of building a pretty island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the process of buying new items like furniture and other elements, but also crafting tons of your own upgrades via the DIY Recipes system. The process for building relationships with your new neighbors and creating the perfect town is a pretty involved one. Players who invest this kind of time with ACNH will want to also put the effort in to make the people living in their town look good. Kicks’ store in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a new part of that puzzle as well. Players who spend a ton of time making houses and gardens look pretty will also want the same for their avatars.
So, how do you unlock Kicks’ store in Animal Crossing: New Horizons? And yes, you will want to do this because Kick sells shoes, clothes, and other fancy items in plenty of interesting colors and patterns. The process of gaining access to these fanciful items is pretty involved. . You will need to have upgraded both Nook’s Cranny and Resident Services, invite plenty of new residents, and increase the rating of your island
Upgrading Resident Services is your first step. Once that’s done, there’s another upgrade of your island’s infrastructure in that you need to update Nook’s Cranny as well. All you have to do after that is just play the game as normal. The final piece of the puzzle is increasing the population of your island.
