Sale Day is an event in Animal Crossing and Doubutsu no Mori e+ that occurs on the fourth Friday in November. During the event, Tortimer appears near the Wishing Well and will give the player a Market Model if spoken to. He tells them Sale Day is a day to support the local economy and that it is the beginning of the holiday season.

Grab Bags being sold at Nookington's on Sale Day.

In addition to Tortimer appearing, Tom Nook's store sells Grab Bags in place of non-furniture or clothing items, and Redd is guaranteed to appear in the player's town. The price of the Grab Bags sold at Tom Nook's store is equivalent to the current year,[nb 1] and they contain three items, which can be furniture, clothing, wallpaper, carpet, or a pinwheel. The former four item types have a 25% chance of appearing in a Grab Bag and can appear multiple times in the same bag,[nb 2] while a pinwheel has a 50% chance of appearing instead of one of the other items and can only appear once in a single bag.

Given its immediate following of the Harvest Festival and general theme, Sale Day is likely based on Black Friday in the United States, which occurs on the same day.


  • A glitch can occur with Redd's tent on Sale Day. If the player buys all three items and leaves the acre, then returns, the tent is replaced by a sign post. Redd can then be found standing in front of a random sign post and if spoken to, will walk into the sign post and disappear as if he is walking into the tent.[1] Afterward, Redd will reappear in front of another sign and the process can be repeated until the end of the day.


  1. For example, if it is 2021, a Grab Bag will cost 2021 Bells.
  2. The furniture, clothing, wallpaper, and carpets obtained from Grab Bags are always from the town's rare item group.
