Nookingtons (たぬきちデーパト Tanukichi Depāto?, Tanukichi Department Store) is the largest expansion to Tom Nook's shop. In this expansion, a new upper floor appears, where furniture, wallpaper, and flooring are sold by Timmy and Tommy. Tom Nook works on the ground floor, which sells flowers, saplings, medicine, and stationery. In Animal Crossing: Wild World, the store also contains Shampoodle, which provides hairstyle makeovers for players at the cost of 3,000 Bells.

To get Tom Nook to expand his store into Nookington's in Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: Wild World, the player must spend and/or sell 240,000 Bells and have a friend shop at the store. In Animal Crossing: City Folk, the player only needs to spend/sell 150,000 Bells, and another player shopping at Nookway is not required for the upgrade.

In Animal Crossing: Wild World, the requirement for a friend to purchase something in the player's Nookway may create problems for those who do not have a real-life friend with a copy of Wild World and a their own DS, or for those who do not have functional or compatible Internet to use the DS's built-in Wi-Fi or the Nintendo DS Wi-Fi USB Connector, leaving them unable to upgrade their store. In this case, there is no other way to upgrade to Nookington's. However, some Wild World cartridges have been known to glitch and upgrade from Nookway to Nookington's whether a visitor shopped there or not.

As of May 20, 2014, Nintendo has discontinued the Nintendo Wi-Fi service[1], which means that it is no longer possible to upgrade to Nookington's in Wild World through inviting friends over the Internet. However, local wireless still functions, meaning that having a friend with a system and a copy of Wild World would allow the upgrade to occur.

In the Wii U Virtual Console version of Wild World, the requirement for a friend to visit was dropped due to the lack of online or local multiplayer compatibility.
