The trading shops are tiered stores that primarily sell junk and other miscellaneous items, which can be constructed in a settlement via the workshop. A settler must be assigned to the trading stand in order for it to function as a shop and increase happiness.
The trading stand is the first tier trader shop. The outdoor stand has a crudely drawn shopping cart fixed to the top of the crossbar with a sign reading "store" hanging underneath. The store counter has "general" written across the front in green capitals.
The trading shop is the second tier store. The outdoor stand has two signs: "general trading" fixed to the ceiling and "store" hanging underneath on the right. The store counter variant is visually identical to that of the trading stand.
The trading emporium is the top tier store. The outdoor stand is constructed from metal, with front shutters. There is a crudely drawn shopping trolley and "general trader" written underneath affixed to the shop ceiling. The counter version has "general" written across the front left hand side in green capitals with two rows of backless shelves on the right hand side, consisting of 2 shelves to a row. The trading emporium has the widest range of goods available of the three trader shops.
