|Open Hours:||9am to 5pm|
|Closed:||Non-rainy Saturdays (Building Open, no sales)|
The Fish Shop is the home of Willy. It's located on the docks of the Beach, south of Pelican Town. If the player has not read the mail from Willy sent on Spring 2, then this shop cannot be entered. Although the door will unlock on Saturdays, the shop will be closed unless it is raining.
Willy offers a variety of fishing supplies inside, including rods, bait, tackle and crab pots, and more goods become available as the player increases their fishing skill. These items can be bought from the shop as soon as the appropriate skill level is achieved, without needing to wait until the next day.
Note that the Copper Pan unlocks in the Fish Shop after obtaining the first one from Willy in the cutscene after completing the Fish Tank Bundles or purchasing "Panning" from the Joja Community Development Form. Trout Soup, the Training Rod, and the Bamboo Pole are available as soon as the Fish Shop is open.

- Interacting with the ladder at the back of the shop results in a message that suggests Willy lives upstairs.
