A shop in Final Fantasy X.

Shops (ショップ, Shoppu?) are a recurring feature in the Final Fantasy series. Appearing in every game, they provide the player with areas where items, weapons, armor and magic can be bought and sold for Gil. There are four recurring types of Shop, which are named according to what they sell: Armor Shops sell Armor, Magic Shops sell Magic, Weapon Shops sell Weapons, and Item Shops sell Items.

Not every game has the same kind of shops available, for example, in the original Final Fantasy, there were shops for both Black and White Magic, while in most games, there is no division. Final Fantasy VIII also marked this tradition, featuring only two kinds of Shops: the recurring Item Shops and the Junk Shop, which would act as a Weapon Shop.

Final Fantasy IIIEdit

Weapon, Armor, Item, and Magic shops reappear in this game. Unlike the previous games, not every town has at least one of these, which can be seen in the case of Saronia or Doga's Manor. Also, Doga's Village has magic shops that sell all kinds of magic, except for level 8 spells, which can only be purchased at Eureka. In this same area exists a shop that sells both armor and weapons.

Final Fantasy IV -Interlude-Edit

Due to the linearity and shortness of the game, there are few shops. There are shops in the Cave of Eblan and the Feymarch, the former doesn't have anyone living there anymore while the later nobody sells anything.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Castle Surgate Armory

Castle Surgate's armory, from Final Fantasy V.

Magic shops were revived in Final Fantasy V, with the return of the job system. Black Magic, White Magic, Time Magic, and the first level of Summon Magic can be purchased. Item, Weapon, and Armor shops exist in every town as well. A new feature to the series was that all the shops could share the same building.

Final Fantasy VIEdit

FF6 Auction House

The Auction House at Jidoor.

Magic Shops do not appear in this game, and while armor and weapon shops can share the same building, item shops are always distinct from both. Final Fantasy VI introduced a new type of shop in the series, the Auction House, only found at Jidoor.

Final Fantasy VIIEdit

Icicle inn7

The Icicle Inn Weapon Shop in Final Fantasy VII.

The shops of Final Fantasy VII are of different style to the shops in previous installments. While there are general shops that sell all kinds of items, there is no distinction between armor and weapon shops, and the Materia shops serve as the magic shops of this game. Shops that sell only accessories also exist.

The Sector 7 shops become unavailable not too far into the game, which makes certain early game armor unavailable if the player didn't buy them. In Junon the shops' inventory updates on disc 2, all but for the Materia shop. Game data suggests the Materia shop's inventory was intended to update as well, and it not doing so is a glitch. This is notable as it would have sold the Magic Plus Materia that isn't available from any shop in the retail version of the game.

In Wutai the shops will not sell the items to the player if Yuffie is still hiding in the town; the player must complete the side quest of reuniting with her for the shops to open. In Mideel most of the shops close after an earthquake ravages the town, but the player can still buy the items for an increased price from a shopper with a white chocobo.

List of Locations that features shops:

Zack can access an online shop feature of the Worldwide Network, which the player uses from the menu. New shop online addresses can be obtained in story events or as mission rewards or in special story events.

Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-Edit

The item shops resemble 1950's style jukeboxes, and are found in various places in each of the levels during the game. They are also found at the end of each stage. They all sell the same items, and offer a range of gun upgrades.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Deling Shop

Deling City Shopping Arcade.

Esthar Shopping Mall

Esthar City Shopping Mall.

Final Fantasy VIII has no common equipment shops and instead features Junk Shops where weapons can be remodeled. Shops can be accessed anywhere using the Guardian Force Tonberry's Call Shop ability, and Junk Shops can be accessed anywhere using the Guardian Force Doomtrain's Junk Shop ability.

All regular shops have the exact same items in all of them. The exceptions are the shops in Esthar City with some unique shops, and the pet shop in Timber. Some shops in Esthar City are closed: Cheryl's Shop will give a Rosetta Stone randomly when one tries to access the shop, and Johnny's Shop is initially closed but will open at a random time when the player tries to enter it. The player must open Johnny's Shop from the shopping arcade terminal in Esthar City to get it for Tonberry's Call Shop ability.

There is a dummied shop that was intended to be found somewhere in Trabia, but it didn't have any unique items.

Shops are commonly found in cities and towns, but some merchant moogles roam Gaia, offering their services when spoken to in dungeons and other places that have no physical shops. The moogles sell various items and equipment but in towns equipment shops and item shops are usually separate.

An Auction House can be found at Treno, and Final Fantasy IX introduces another type of shop: the synthesis shops. These can be found at most towns. There is also a hidden synthesis shop that opens after the player defeats the optional boss Hades.

Final Fantasy XEdit

FFX Shop Menu

Other than the common shops found at travel agencies and towns, the wandering merchant O'aka XXIII and his brother Wantz provide the party their services along the journey. Their stock is varied. Most shops offer both equipment and items and so, the number of shops per area rarely surpasses the three (counting with O'aka).

If the player meets with Wantz he will sell weapons with empty ability slots in Macalania at end game. The player can buy Clear Spheres from the Monster Arena to clear out nodes in the Sphere Grid to replace with more potent stat boosts to max out their stats.

List of Locations that feature Shops:

Final Fantasy X-2Edit

Lake Macalania Shop

Shop at Lake Macalania.

Shops appear in most of the locations throughout the game within travel agencies and merchants, just like they did in Final Fantasy X. Barkeep has a shop on board the party's airship, the Celsius, and if the player saves O'aka from his Al Bhed debtors, he will come on board the airship as well and sell the player items to pay his debt. The player can no longer equip weapons in Final Fantasy X-2, so the shops' inventories consist of accessories and items.

If the player saves the travel agency at Lake Macalania from fiends and has O'aka reunite with his brother Wantz, they will find good accessories from their shop in Chapter 5. If the player has Clasko open a Chocobo Ranch at the former Monster Arena, he will balance the player's chocobo related items for catching chocobos.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

Every town and city in Vana'diel has at least one NPC selling weapons, armors, items, and magic scrolls. The big cities (except Jeuno) also host the headquarters of crafting guilds and their guild shops can be found in their cities. Guild shops, unlike regular shops, have opening and closing hours and have a holiday on a specific day each week. Despite the existence of NPC merchants, players generally trade with each other through the use of Auction House since they can get a better price and most of the best items are not sold by NPC merchants.

Final Fantasy XIIEdit

Westersand shop

See also: Bazaar (Final Fantasy XII)

In the major towns of Ivalice, shops are divided into magick, weapons, armor, gambits, technicks, and items, like in the past games of the series, and in minor areas there are usually merchants selling base provisions. Many of the more remote shops update their stock late in the game to sell special magick spells and equipment that are not available from any other shop. Necrohol of Nabudis has a hidden shop that the player can find by inspecting a corner of a room in an area off the map. The Clan Centurio shop in Muthru Bazaar in Royal City of Rabanastre sells items based on the player's rank in the clan.

A new kind of shop in Final Fantasy XII is the Bazaar that is available in every normal shop, but the items in the Bazaar only become available as the player sells specific loot items in specific quantities to the shops. Many of the best equipment are only available through the Bazaar.

Maps can be purchased from Cartographers' Guild moogles. The only time a map can be purchased from a normal vendor is if the player missed the map of Royal City of Rabanastre while they were there, in which case the map will be available in a shop in Old Archades.

The Skyferries also sell items, and different airship routes have slightly different stock.

Shop prices were dropped for the Final Fantasy XII: International Zodiac Job System re-release of the game.

Shops in Final Fantasy Type-0 are indicated by the icon for "shop" (, Mise?) above the shopkeeper's head.

Other shops, which are found in towns on the World Map, retain their set of wares throughout the entire game.

Shops exist on every town that have their own set prices, giving discounts on weapons usable by the town's dominant race while other weapons are sold at higher prices. A good example is spears being cheaper in Sprohm than anywhere else, as they are usable by bangaa-only jobs, while Rapiers, a viera-exclusive weapon, are cheaper in Muscadet.

Each town has their own shopkeeper, whose race is the dominant one in the town. The only shopkeeper whose name is known is Ellen, a viera shopkeeper who sells at Muscadet. She's mentioned in the mission "No Answers" along with a member from Clan Ritz.
