Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th


Nuts and Bolts teased us back in December about a BIG secret project they were working on and it has finally been revealed. This pair of “Construction” beavers have been very busy redesigning the W-Shop! Upon reveal, February 19th, 2014, the W-Shop will feature all of the Main Categories along the left hand side with subsections listed across the top. With the new subsection listings, ie: “Pedestals”, “Plants”, “Clocks”, “Windows” Bolt assures us that finding items will be much easier. There will also be a section in the W-Shop for adopting pets and you will be able to shop for eStore items!
 
To celebrate this W-Shop unveiling, Fluffington, the St. Bernard and the richest Webkinz in Kinzville has decided to reward everyone with 2000 free eStore points. When you log in between February 19th and April 1st, 2014, 2000 eStore points will automatically be added to your account!
 
 
 
Also on February 19th, 2014 Ganz will be retiring the Cafe Room Theme and the Sports Room Theme to deluxe only so if you are missing pieces of these themes you had better get shopping!
 

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

I knew it'd be a new W-Shop. 2000 estore points won't really buy you much, but that's still cool.

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

Yay! I'm so excited about the new W-shop AND the FREE points!

However, I really hope they don't mix e-store and normal W-shop items together. That would be quite annoying.

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

I like the new w-shop, but I don't like the estore and w-shop items mixed together. It would be quite annoying. Atleast it's more organized..

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

Sure hope we can figure it all out!

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

Thanks for the great information.I am really happy about those free points

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

Thanks for the information! I am very excited about the free eStore points; I've marked down Feb. 19 on my calendar and I already know what I'm going to buy!

However, I am very angry about Ganz taking away two more themes. All the good themes that actually look nice in the room are being taken away. And I really hate how Ganz keeps throwing around the word "retired." The items are being taken away and restricted to only Deluxe, not being "retired." It's actually kind of insulting to the regular members. Finally, I really hope Ganz doesn't mix together the W-shop and eStore items.

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

I am so excited for the new changes!! And of course, the FREE 2,000 eStore points!! Yay

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

Does this mean that we'll be able to buy pets with kinzcash at the new w shop?

When it's all said and done, free is still FREE And it's nice that people who never get to shop eStore will have the opportunity to get a small estore item. If you save and wait until Deal of the Day, you can stretch that 2000 points to 4 items

BookWorm, they aren't gone They have just been retired to Deluxe and to be honest, they have been around one of the longest running themes in the store. You are a Gift Guru, what you don't have you will be able to access readily

I know, but being "retired" implies that the items are no longer available, when they actually are, but only for Deluxe. Ganz seems to be removing themes from the W-shop a lot faster than they are adding them, and that doesn't help either. I see Ganz removing the themes that everyone uses often, like the General Store, Cafe, City Styling, etc. They aren't moving the stuff no one wants to Deluxe. I am lucky to be a part of the GE and WI, but most WW members are not. Thank you for your thoughtful post!

I don't think anyone answered you.
No. The pets are a lot more than 2000 points. Unless maybe they put them on a huge sale.

Nope 2000 isn't a lot and you can't get much however it is a nice gift and my daughter is excited.
We NEVER buy estore things so this will give her a chance to pick something out.
There are a few clothes, walls, flooring, and decorations for 1000 or 2000. I'm sure everyone will find something they would like.

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

The new design looks interesting, and those points sound nice .

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

Thanks so much for answering, TrekGirl.

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

the new format looks nice and colorful. hope it works faster than the old.

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

I can't wait!
It's going to be amazing, I'm also happy about the free e-store points.
Thank you for the information!

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

This has already been answered. No it doesn't, not even with the 2,000 estore points we get for free (2,000 estore points doesn't get you very much. Maybe a nice piece of clothing, but it still is cool we're getting free estore points! ).

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

I like the new set up. Only take a short time to get use to it. I think it is a good improvement. My only two complaints are I don't like estore items mixed up with wshop items. It just more stuff to search through when looking to decorate your room and most likely won't be buying that stuff. Separate tab for estore would be nice. My Second complaint is an old one. Pet food comes before recipe food, so with many pets it takes awhile to reach recipe foods. Therefore I don't make many recipes unless I have to for challenges.
Other than that love the changes and you don't have to open dock in order to shop. Another plus.

Re: Redesigned W-Shop to be unveiled on February 19th

checked out the new format. somethings I like, somethings I don't. LOL

I like that your don't have to load your dock. separate button for that.

I like you can sell back 12 items at a time instead of 9 items.

IDK yet if I like the buying one item and paying, than repeat, repeat. wonder if past format was quicker at this selecting 9 items than paying once.

Oh well.
