Storfallet year 75-79, Grocery Expert

« previous entry | next entry »
Sep. 12th, 2010 | 05:31 pm


Previously at Storfallet, Britta bought her first grocery store and worked it to level 4. Robin wrote his first best-seller, about how to earn money. Konrad and Britta grew up to elders. Robin met his pregnant daughter Caroline for the first time. Kerstin wrote bestsellers and advanced in her criminal career. No romance was to be seen.



We start off this childless townie household with Kerstin Tidholm, who gets promoted to Criminal Mastermind at age 46.

 

Her new dream is to become a Worldknown Balletdancer. We’ll see what we can do.



Zeeshan sells groceries until the shop reaches level 5.

Unfortunately, Jim the reviewer is in a bad mood today, and writes a bad review. Britta doesn’t care, since she just laid eyes on the hottest widower in Mattsmyra, Sebastian Montell.



Back home, Kerstin puts on her sexy uniform and heads off to work. That uniform is much better on adults than on elders.



Robin, who had to restart his career after a bad decision before, gets promoted to Bookmaker.

Robin: “It feels like a déjà-vu all over again”



The store reaches level 6 by the next night. Not much happens in between the levels, that’s why there aren’t very many pictures.



Kerstin starts a new novel, about her plans as an Evil Empress.



With the great help of Zeeshan, Britta’s grocery store reaches level 7. It’s a very popular place!



Back home, Robin gets promoted to Con Artist

Robin: “It’s still like a déjà-vu!”

So he starts a mystery sci-fi novel with lots of twists and turns and open ends.



And we have level 8. Yay for Zeeshan! And level 9 in the same session!



During one of her rare visits at home, Britta cooks a lunch of sea bass for her family and friends. Then she’s off to the store again.



Just a few customers later, the store reaches level 10. Remember the face of this young man, he’s an excellent salesman and has a big role in Britta’s success.



Immediately Britta packs up and goes home to sell the store
And to buy a new one. She chooses the Round Barn, to continue her experience in groceries, but also to go into clothing.



The first thing Britta wants to do when arriving to her new lot is to hire Zeeshan again. Smart move! Unfortunately he’s not on the list of available employees, so she invites him over instead.
 

I can’t believe he’s named Montell, too! Anyway, this is how Zeeshan looks like when he’s not in uniform. He’s an origianl townie teen, so look out for him in your game if you want a good employee! Unfortunately Zeeshan is not selectable to talk to, so Britta fails in hiring him.



The start of her new company isn’t really good for Britta, when she’s trying to do it on her own. A new reporter writes a bad review about the establishment.
The next morning, Britta invites Zeeshan over again, and this time she’s able to offer him an employment. He’s happy to help.



The plan is to teach Zeeshan to handle the register while the shop is at a low level, so that the customers are more patient with a slow worker. Therefor Britta handles the sales herself.

David Ottomas gave Britta a level 1 company, and now David Sandvall gices her level 2. Maybe we should call in David Lind to give her level 3 :)



Level 3 is instead reached with the help of Edward Djärv. Again it was such luck to find Zeeshan and re-employ him. She also promotes him to manager.



Back home, Robin, 70, is promoted to Getaway Driver.

Robin: “I’m too old for this!”



The same day, Konrad gets promoted to Visionary Artist, which is the TOC of the Artist career. 1p!



Robin only has to work as a getaway driver one night, then he gets promoted again, to Bankrobber.

Robin: “That’s more like it!”



Kerstin has wished for a gold badge in fishing for a long time, and now she got it. Her Nature interest has increased while fishing, so now she wishes for a plaque in Nature enthusiasm.



Robin, now 72, is promoted to Cat Burglar

Robin: “Here we go again, I’m too old for this!”
 



Storfallet after round 21:
Robin Logren
Britta Logren
Konrad Platz
Kerstin Tidholm

Congratulations on all the business success you've had with Britta. Hope she'll be able to hang on to Zeeshan as an employee for as long as she's working the businesses like that. Hopefully Robin will catch a break and rise through the ranks quickly so he can retire.

I'm amazed how easy it is for Britta to work her businesses, compares to Leif Hartwig, who's trying to do the same... It must be Zeeshan magic all over :)

What an amazing young man, this Zeeshan! He looks vaguely familiar, but the name is not. Is he one of the Maxis townies, you think, or random spawn?

I think he's an original, but has random names in every hood. If don't remember it wrong, I married him into my first legacy that was not a real legacy and it wasn't blogged. But as you say, he had a different name then

Wow Zeeshan is such a good employee, and a manager at such a young age... he's handsome too, you should try and fix him up with one of your many eligible young ladies. Nice job with the businesses and promotions!

I got a new idea just now - maybe I should let Britta adopt him and take over the big house - she doesn't have any children of her own...

You seem to have improved quite a bit from the first home business that you ran to now easily reaching a level ten! Congratulations. [=

I'm amazed at my own development :) Or it's all Zeeshan's work. It seems very easy with him!

This is such a funny house. Konrad (Chandler for me) is an artist in my game too. Good job on the grocery store. I'll have to keep a look out for that kid, see if I can get around Hua-Ling's places. Robin is funny....too old for all of these things! :)

Robin always looks tired and/or bored, so I guess he IS too old :)

Gosh - you've really got a hang of how to handle a business! And the mystery/sci-fi novel plot was as daring as inspired. Less is more :)))))
I laughed my way through this - as usual. You will most certainly get more flattering remarks from me ;-) It's getting more and more impressing the further I get.

The business success is all thanks to Britta and Zeeshan themselves. Noone else succeeds like they do!
