Quest for Stuff Quick Walkthroughs: Shopping District to Unlocking the School District

Hello there Clammers!

We last left off our walkthrough we had completed the quests from the start of the game & unlocking Clam Quarter, and Peter was just suggesting we unlock the Shopping District (District 3)!  So now we pick this back up with the complete quests that will pop up while in the Shopping District!

The Shopping District is where you’ll unlock Mort, Lois & Al Harrington’s.  By unlocking Al Harrington’s you’ll be able to start to build costumes and unlock more skins (& tasks) for your characters!

I tired to run this one a little bit differently than the first walkthrough & sort it via the questline, instead of it jumping all over the place (which the game itself will do).  Note: Questline is considered the entire task list that is required under a certain title.  For example Dollars and Sense Pt. 1, Pt. 2 etc.  This should help you keep track of what comes next in each questline & what you’ll need to do.  Keep in mind, with this game various quests/tasks can be running at once.  You can be in the middle of 1 questline and another questline will start, however the order in which the questlines appear may be different for each game.

Unlocking characters in the Shopping District takes a little more patience, as the list of “Stuff” required to unlock is longer, and the quantities of each are greater.  Take your time, try not to get frustrated when the items don’t appear.  Try a different task to unlock the item, or try working on a different item.

So let’s pick our walkthrough back up with Peter, Goldman’s Pharmacy & the quest for NEW stuff!

Just a reminder
To unlock characters
: once you’ve collected all of the “Stuff”, you’ll need to go through their items again and tap the ones with check marks.  Once you’ve gone through each one the lock over the character’s head will turn gold and show unlock.  At this point tap the character again to fully unlock the character.

As you get further into the game it becomes harder to earn the items needed to unlock the characters.  Be sure to check out the Materials page to see the odds of the items and who can help you unlock them.

  1. I play on a Windows 8.1 tablet. I am stuck on The Fattest Loser Pt 4. For some reason, the game wont let me open the quest. I get the dialog leading up to it, but it wont open. Is there something I need to do first? I have been stuck for weeks now.

  4. Just got this on my Windows Phone (Lumia) & am _loving_ it!

    Been farming like crazy to finish Lois within 24 hours for the free 25 clams & was 4 (FOUR! Count ’em! 😛 ) minutes short of starting Chris on a 6-hour ‘private time’ for the last drop. Ended up spending £3.49 ‘RL’ money on a box of coins (& got the same in clams free – noice!) just to spend a couple of those clams in order to finish in the time allotted. (Is the “buy coins get the same value of clams ” _always_ the case or was it a one-time deal?)

    Now working on Herbert & Joe, but 6,000(?!?) to complete the school? Well, I’m over 5,000 so far, so it doesn’t seem so bad (now). Clearing the undeveloped areas seems to be rising pretty steeply in cost, which is prolly my main gripe.

    And those popsicles? Getting them is grinding my gears somewhat, too…

  7. I am still having issues with the game. I absolutely cannot unlock the school district. I dont have any kind of quests written on my little pad, its blank. I cant click on peter, quagmire or jerome to do quests, I am playing on windows and have written the company numerous times and they got back to me once and asked question, and they havent replied since. Its been a couple weeks at least. Thanks for any help you can give me. I am tired of buying the same office buildings over and over just to have something to do.

  14. I am stuck with Lois locked waiting on lipstick. Hooker Peter also needs lipstick. The lipstick is evenly going to Peter and Lois! I would much rather be able to designate all lipstick to unlock Lois. I can’t tell, but Bonnie has been to the clam 4 times, Chris has had private time 4 times, and I have tapped the day spa twice now. I have a total of 4 lipsticks: 2 for Lois and 2 for PEter. How rare is the lipstick, because other “rare” stuff isn’t as rare as the lipstick, IMO. I am upset if Peter is getting the lipstick meant for Lois. I am starting a quest for lipstick by tapping Lois and then selecting the task from there. It is possible that I have spent 3 days trying to get lipstick for Lois only to get 2, and the 2 lipsticks went down as 2 for HP and 2 for Lois when I only “earned” 2 total….but it’s irritating that it’s taking DAYS to get Lois unlocked. It will take me a week at this rate. Quagmire with gerbils is faster. PEter is stealing lipstick meant for Lois, and I can’t do anything about it.

    Like

    • My best advice is to not allow Peter to get to Hooker level before you unlock Lois. Make Lois the priority…I dont recall which level Peter has to be at in order to unlock the Quest for Hooker Peter, but be aware that your quest items will go wherever they like once you earn them. The Day Spa is showing multiple items, too, so I am getting no lipstick from the Day Spa. This is really irritating, I think the developers need to allow users to set a priority Lois. Wondering where else this is a problem, where characters share requirements for very rare items. I’m about to throw in the towel, it’s not fun any more.

      Like

      • Maybe I’m imagining things, but if I have two characters waiting for the same item, and that item appears, it counts towards both characters. When the item floats up to the top, both characters meters are advanced, and the count has increased.

          • Right, I was confirming this because Zippy seems to be implying you should be able to choose which characters get the item, but if all characters waiting for that item get credit, there is really no reason to have to choose. The item is not credited to only one, or split between characters.

    • Am I going to have to get RARE 12 lipsticks in order to unlock Lois??!?!? I’ll let you know. IMO, tapping on Lois for a task should make the lipstick go to Lois. I’ll respond later with results. So far, I never saw where the lipstick was coming from, because I have earned 1 lipstick a day, usually in the AM when EVERYTHING has spit out stuff and I never saw a lipstick icon floating. Not once. But I will be more observant and post it here.

  21. When you are collecting stuff and it says “rare” does that mean you will never unlock it eg with mort Bonnie has to twerk it so will the rare stuff never unlock? I’ve unlocked all of morts tasks but the final one that says rare?

    • It just means that it may take you a few tries before the item will actually “Pop out” when the task is complete. So you may do the task once or five times to get one rare item. Hope that helps. 😉

    • Nope, they’ll unlock. Just not guaranteed every time you make the character do that task. For example every time Mort swallows jewels he won’t give you jewels. It’s basically an odds thing. If you check out the materials page you’ll see the actual odds for each item. 🙂

      In the walkthroughs they’re sorted by questline because various quests will pop at at different times depending on how you’re playing the game, but sorting them by questline allows you to find what you need to complete each section of the District. 🙂

  26. When the task to create Hooker Peter came up, there was a special limited time offer to buy it with 600 clams and get all of them back as a reward after finishing – so basically get it for nothing if you are willing to spend money on the clams in the first place. This was only good for one hour, then it disappeared. As you didn’t mention it, maybe this is another thing only iOS users got?

    • I’m on Android and I got the offer as well. I actually did take advantage of it since it was limited time and you got all your clams back and now I have both Hooker Peter and all 600 clams. Not a bad deal if you’re willing to shell out for the clams (no pun intended).
