What fun retail stores have you created?

I want to start using Get to Work again and open a retail store. I've done a paint shop and bakery. The paintings really made me A LOT of money. More money than I liked actually.
I need new ideas for another retail store. Anyone got any cool stores they've done?

    I've done what you did plus the clothing and furniture store. Not that exciting but I thought another simmers store selling herbalism brews was interesting,

    I made a shopping mall (that has a potions store, clothing store, bakery and grocery store) that is run by NPCs, cuz it's too big for my sims to run it. LOL. The potions store won't make a profit since they are free but the grocery store sells onions and sage, etc, and also fish such as salmon and bass. My sims always goes there to buy food stuff and it's convenient for me too since I don't have to make him travel all over the place to find a certain ingredient to bake.

    I also made a fast food restaurant that sells burgers and hotdogs. :)

    I created a "art fanatic" retail store. Much like you, it has a lot of paintings, but I also included rocks and fossils found and other things that the family dug up. I also added some mannequins and put together quite "artsy" outfits that always sell out. I'm having a great time with it. My whole family loves to paint and look for rare items, so it works!

    Oh the fast food idea is pretty cool. I currently am running a bakery again, maybe I'll sell it and start a fast food restaurant soon. Thank you. :smiley:

    I did a shopping mall as well with bakery, Clothing store, Photographers studio, Toy Store, Furniture shop, Bookstore, music shop and florist. It has a empty shop to be an ice creamery later. I made an 8 person household which I don't really play but maxed out the relevant skills for each shop (eg 1 has maxed baking & cooking for bakery, writer for the bookstore) to run it and it's working well as a place for my more playable Sims to hang out.

    ETA ****Lot is on gallery under Laciandia****

    Once I get Outdoor Retreat I plan on doing a 3 generations of wise woman style family (grandma, mum and teen) with a lil woodland cottage selling potions and herbs.

    I've made quite a few retail stores. My latest is Midtown Florist which is a lot of fun and quite beautiful if I must say so myself. All my retail stores have attached apartments to keep my sims happy and they can stay the night and start work early. Check them out if you like.

    What's your Origin ID? And do you have your flower shop in the gallery? I'd like to see what it looks like. :)

    I recently completed my clothes store! I've played it only briefly but it was thoroughly enjoyable!
