Group

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

A group, also known as a probability group,[1] is a value assigned to some items in Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: Wild World that determines their rarity in a specific town. Furniture, clothing, wallpapers, carpets, and stationery from Tom Nook's store and the Able Sisters are assigned a group of A, B, or C, and in each town, one of the groups is common, one is uncommon, and one is rare. Which group is common, uncommon, and rare is assigned upon town creation, and it is different for each type of item. For example, Group A furniture may be common in a town, but Group A clothing may be rare in the same town.

Having item fêng shui increases the chances of uncommon and rare items appearing. Additionally, some sources only contain items of a specific rarity.
