Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update: New file uploaded. Clothes racks have now been turned so sims can buy from them and the wedding arch blocking the till has been removed, please redownload.

The other day lauratje86 posted a WCIF for bread and It got me thinking about supermarkets. Over here a supermarket is a one stop all in one grocery store. You have sections for fresh produce, canned, cleaning items, baby care, even a small craft, toys, card and garden sections. I decided I really need a proper supermarket selling bread, milk and everything else but I didn't want a huge lot. As often happens I couldn't find what I wanted so I built it myself. Now this version has way less CC than my own game version. My own version has many items all as separate pieces on the shelves but that would be over a hundred cc files so I compromised and used pre-stocked shelves, but did include the bread.


Most of the CC I have included as separate links because I didn't use the entire sets and the one set that I tried to include was in German and I really couldn't tell what I had used or not. All you need do is place the cc into your download folder and it will show up in the lot.

Features

On entering the store your sim will be drawn towards the specials area and by the smell of the freshly brewed coffee and cake. There is an espresso stand and snack machines. In the eating area are two tables but only the straight one is usable, the angled one is for decoration only. The bakery also has a fridge, stove and bench.

Following the green floor tile, it's onto the flowers & gifts, the rack of clothes and magazines. Think about your mum and buy her some flowers. I used a wedding arch there for deco purposes, I doubt it can be used. Who wants to get married in an alcove behind a till anyways. In the back area, there is a flower arranging and toy making bench.
The gift area comes with 3 empty counters for you to place something on.
Suggestions for the empty counters


While the grocery isles all have signs, what is on the shelves does not always match up. We can pretend the choc chip cookies are dog treats, right? There are a few game items on some of the empty shelves and bread.

Along the back is the butcher, deli and freezer/dairy sections. The Butcher has real extracted game fish. The freezers are game freezers but also two recoloured freezers, one for pizza and one for icecream-because you can't go wrong with pizza and ice cream, amiright? No, it doesn't really have pizza and ice cream, it's just a recolour.

Exiting the cold foods there is a photo booth, toy shelves and fresh fruit samples. (Just deco but you might be able to replace it with some kind of edible fruit) Because Jonny really wants the fresh fruit and we at Llama foods believe in children's health and wellbeing. "Mummeee I wanna toy!" Shhh kid. Then the garden section and checkouts.


Games, pet collars and a chocolate stand at the checkouts because I know you really came in here for M&M's. So I believe this is another produce stand, but hey we have our imaginations. The social glasses might be able to be used, I didn't check if they can be reached there or not. I don't know what other countries have, but here Supermarkets always have chocolate and cheap junk at the checkouts and what says 'cheap junk' better than a pair of ugly plastic glasses?


Just in case you can't find something or have a return the information stand is next to the checkouts.

Please leave your trolleys in the outside stands and not on the road! (trolley is a shopping cart)

I also designed this to be player run if you would like. Each section has it's own door from the outside that you can lock and the storeroom could be changed into a staff room.

Included in the file is the chocolate stand as that file is no longer available on here. Close up shown in the pictures since it is quite an old recolour.
Also included is the POS machine from retail sims.

Jo's this is Absolutely beautiful I love your whole setup,but unfortunately all I can do is look, I don't have all of your EPs.
I do have BV and FT but they seem not to work well in my game,but never mind me what you have build here is GREAT.

@joandsarah77 Question Please you mention and your wonderful signs poster that you use the fish that Sims can buy and eat, are you referring to The PC Sims fish kiosk mod ? If so I have that mod the Sims can buy and I have them to stock it in their fridge, my problem is I can not always find it in the fridge,maybe because I have many custom foods. Or are you using another mod where the Sims can buy? If so Please share. I made my Butcher Shop yesterday I just wanted a small lot so I use Mary Lou 1x1 lot it's perfect. Thank to you Jo's your wonderful signs and grocery store push me to do so. I notice the meat counter with the deco meats do not have an option for Sims to view but the hang sausages do.

@joandsarah77 This is what I use in my butcher shop, these recolors ( I use the white recolors to match the meat counter ) with PCSims fish they come big and small.
With the Mod you can direct your Sims to buy fish and it will show up in their inventory which you can stock in the fridge for them to eat you don't have to extract Sims 2 fish PC sims Mod do it all for you.

NOTE : Michelle who did the recolors also Slaved PC Mod to the Kiosk so everything you need is there just download and put in your folders under Mods ( it work perfect. ) Now once you direct a Sims to buy they will go crazy with buying so you have to stop them. Here it is and all ready The Mod have been Slaved within. http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=580464 If you have her Freezers recolors it will show up for that as well here http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=562764

This is lovely. @joandsarah77, I really appreciate when modders don't overload their downloads with too much CC, but I am curious about other things you use and what your own store looks like. Would you consider showing us a few pics of the version you play?

@Sunrader Once I have the store set up properly I will add some pictures to my business thread (in my siggy) But basically it's this shop but with shelves that have room to add individual items. I want sims to go and buy certain things like the main ingredients before I allow them to cook a dish. Feel free to bump my business thread and talk about it on there.

This looks wonderful, and I look forward to using this lot. Thank you for making it! ^-^

Just a heads up though: the link you gave to Pixelry's site leads to a dead end. I did manage to find her grocery set here, if anyone needs it.

That would be because you are on the older version of WinRar. I had that myself and upgraded and problem solved, but now I am on the new one you will be getting that same issue. Just go grab the latest version of WinRAR and it should be fine.

Three Problem Areas
I found 3 problems:

1) the souvinier counter sales person can is prevented from getting behind the counter to acess the till.

2.) The two clothes racks near the souvenier counter - next to the magazine rack, cannot be used to make a purchase.

3) The cashier at the check out with the dog collar display must cope with customers invading her space.

Being a builder I can mend these in the store in my game. Lovely build and fun to visit.

Thanks for the feedback @teafortwo I'll look into it.
1)Was it the arch?
2) Probably backwards, I can never remember which way they go.
3) can't remember that, but thanks.

Thanks.

File updated to fix the two issues, 1) Backwards clothing rack-apparently the arrow has to face the wall not out and removed the wedding arch which looked pretty but was blocking the cashier.

Looks beautiful but would not load for me :( I suspect my graphics card is not powerful enough. If I load another lot, I can access the cc for this one though, lol
