I am here to talk about the growing issue of Tom Nook and his mega corporation, Nookington's. The man is power hungry and must be stopped before society collapses under his oppressive heel. He has moved into every city in the world and is taking over with little struggle. Before we know it every single one of our hard earned bells will end up his pocket.

All other retailers have been forced under and fine upstanding sellers like Saharah the camel and Joan the boar are forced to walk miles between cities in hopes of making small sales. There is just no way for them to compete. Since Tom Nook sinks as low as forcing his own nephews into cheap child labor. There are even rumors of him buying out Shampoodle and incorporating into his super stores. There are no limits to how far he will go.

The effects on society are all too depressing. I met a crazy hobo on a bridge who lost his mind and was handing out pirate clothes. A roaming traveler named Wendell begging for food. Villagers in every city begging you to give them furniture or clothes. All broken and tired from fishing, digging, and shaking fruit off trees to earn bells just to line Tom Nook's deep pockets. Some have even turned to crime and shop at Crazy Redd's black market to save what little they have. If anyone trys to cheat the system are met by Nook's ruthless enforcer, Ressetti. There is no hope.

So I beg of you, stop shopping at Tom Nook's stores! They are tearing down society and ruining the lives of innocent people the world over. Throw a few extra bells to people that deserve it, like K.K. Slider, a man trying to spread music and love in these hard times. Shop at the Abel Sisters store. Keep these fine hard working people afloat and don't donate another bell to the fat and greedy Tom Nook. How much money does one man need? We will end up working for him and our freedom will be lost. Thank for reading this and please spread the word.........our future is at stake.

As an employee of Mr Nook's I'd like to set some things straight.

Mr Nook's generosity is second to none: I've lost count of the number of people he's loaned affordable housing to when they've travelled to a new town with barely a Bell to their name. It is only right he is repaid in time, but unlike many other lenders he doesn't enforce strong arm tactics here, allowing his victims customers to repay at their own pace.

Also, his ability to provide and source desirable goods is often overlooked, I feel. Time and again he's been able to offer the right item at just the right time, and although he may not have the rarest of items his goods are affordable and vary every day. I believe people underestimate the amount of effort that goes into rearranging his shop with new items every day, particularly considering the shop has no storage whatsoever.

People also overlook the long hours Mr Nook works — he often works more than 12 hour days and only closes to carry out necessary upgrade work to his shop to improve the shopping experience for the customer.

Mr Nook is a warm and generous man and if you just got to know him you'd find that out for yourself.

Good day.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

It's just a rumour, but I heard he's leaving the furniture business and will dedicate full time to selling houses.

Aww yes I remember Mr. Nook. He gave me affordable housing, and even gave me a job to pay off my debt. Then he pulled the carpet from under me. He fired me and still told me I had to pay rent while buying goods. When icouldnt pay he had his goons timmy and tommy try to hobble me.

Dude is a pretty bad guy. Nookingtons is the only game in town and you have to buy from nook. He also oddly controls the real estate. He then buys out any mom and pop shops such as the sable sisters and the hair dresser under his evil regime.

WAT!

That's globalisation for you, I'm afraid. Walk down any high-street in the world and you'll find a Nookington's. This is their new advertising campaign:

A Message from Tom Nook

Dearest misinformed imbecile:

After vomiting up turnips for several minutes at the sight of your deplorably cutesy avatar, I managed to glance over your...how should I put this...amusing...manifesto. Have no worry, future-patron. I will not send my, as you put it, "ruthless enforcer," Resetti, to punish you; even though, if he were, hypothetically speaking, such an enforcer, I should. I would never admit to him being anything other than my online-fantasy-football-acquaintance, even if he claimed otherwise after intense torture/several beers.

To address your first point, I have some issues with you calling me "power-hungry" and claiming I have an "oppressive heel." I assure you that the only things for which I am hungry are turnips; the intensity of my craving waxes and wanes as with the passing of the moon, which accounts for my daily-fluctuating turnip prices.

I also must take umbrage with your complete disregard for basic anatomy. Any village idiot (and I know many such idiots) knows that raccoons do not have "heels," as you putrid humans do. I'll point you to this simple diagram, (for I realize that a diagram of a more complex persuasion might make your tiny human brain ache like your precious heels no doubt would after a lengthy run) which clearly outlines that if I have any oppressive appendage, it is surely my calcaneum.

I have other issues with your insidious post, but I am but an honest business man, and as such I have honest business to attend to. On a completely unrelated note, an old online-fantasy-football-acquaintance is coming over shortly at my behest, and I think I have a few...requests...for him.

As an employee of Tom Nook's Nookington, I do not like how you all speak so badly of my boss.
Sure he can be a bit over bearing when it comes to playing him back but he did give you a place to live, and Tom even gave you a radio, free of charge!
Now you see that Tom Nook is not a bad guy at all :) Now lets get down to business to how much your really own Tom Nook.
There's the land fee, the builing taxes, surcharges, various fees and whatnot, also daily rent, air tax, and protection money
And that all comes out to be: 11,500,235 Bells
Its best you paid that quicky unless you want trouble from the big man.

For you, the day LordJumpMad graced your threads, was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.

/me wonders if his purchase of Animal Crossing: Wild World today is part of the reason this thread exists...maybe I'm just being self-centered...


There's nothing I can say that hasn't been said here already, so I'm just going to say that I agree with those saying Tom Nook is a good boss; he gave me a place to live when I was broke! He could be watching
