A ShopShop is a Special Room that sells various pickups and items in exchange for PennyPennies. Shops require a KeyKey to open, unless Isaac holds (except in Rebirth)Store KeyStore Key ((in Repentance) except on floor 1, where Shops are always initially unlocked), and appear in every Chapter prior to WombWomb or including The Womb if Isaac holds (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Silver DollarSilver Dollar. (except in Rebirth) Additionally, a single Shop always spawns adjacent to the ?????? starting room.

Only one shop will ever appear on a floor at a time, even while under the effect of Curse of the LabyrinthCurse of the Labyrinth.

Shops have a chance of being replaced by a Mini-Boss RoomMini-Boss Room containing GreedGreed or Super GreedSuper Greed once entered, starting on the second floor of Chapter 2. Once both mini-bosses has been defeated in a Shop or Secret RoomSecret Room, they will not appear in either for the rest of the run.

  • Greed will always spawn first, followed by Super Greed.
  • If any mini-boss is encountered on the floor, including Greed/Super Greed in the secret room, Greed or Super Greed will not appear in the shop on that floor.
  • (except in Rebirth)Rib of GreedRib of Greed prevents both Greed and Super Greed from appearing in Shops while held.

(except in Rebirth) Greed Mode[ | ]

In Greed Mode, Shops are twice as wide as usual and do not require a Key to enter. They always contain a KeyKey, a Red HeartRed Heart, an item from the Greed Mode Shop item pool, an item from the Greed Mode Boss Room item pool, and two random pickups, trinkets, or items from the Greed Mode Treasure Room item pool. The effect of Collectible Restock iconRestock is always active inside of Shops in this mode ((in Repentance) prices will not increase continuously like they normally would when Isaac has Restock).

Shops will never be replaced by Greed or Super Greed in Greed Mode.

Levels[ | ]

Shops start at level 0 and can be upgraded by donating Coins to the Donation MachineDonation Machine, which can be found in Shops and sometimes in ArcadeArcades, VaultVaults, Black MarketBlack Markets, rare normal/special room layouts, and from pressing (except in Rebirth)Reward Plates. Each level increases the number of items for sale and visually fills the walls of the Shop.

Notes[ | ]

  • The Shop can also be accessed through the usage of IX - The HermitIX - The Hermit, a Golden Key, Curse of the MazeCurse of the Maze, Collectible Dad's Key iconDad's Key, bombing an adjacent Secret RoomSecret Room wall, or (except in Rebirth)Store KeyStore Key, without spending a Key.
  • (except in Repentance) The Shop has a door that is identical to a LibraryLibrary as well as an identical symbol on the minimap. The Shop can never appear adjacent to the starting room (with the exception of the first floor), meaning that any one-key door that spawns adjacent to the starting room is a Library and not a Shop.
    • (except in Rebirth)Store KeyStore Key will not open Library doors, which reveals which room the locked door will lead to.
  • Using a Credit CardCredit Card in the shop will make everything for sale free, spawning item pedestals and removing all listed prices.
    • (except in Rebirth)Collectible Restock iconRestock only replenishes items that are bought for a listed price (including ¢0); therefore, Credit Card negates the effect of Restock for that Shop.
  • Holding Store CreditStore Credit will reduce the price of all items to 0¢. It will be consumed once an item is purchased. Unlike the Credit CardCredit Card, (except in Rebirth)Collectible Restock iconRestock will restock the bought item.
    • (in Afterbirth and Afterbirth †) If the Store CreditStore Credit effect is gained through the effects of ErrorError, it will not be consumed upon making a purchase; this can be combined with Collectible Restock iconRestock to infinitely purchase items.
      • (in Repentance) Only 1 item can be bought for free without losing the trinket, even if Error is dropped and picked up again.
  • (except in Rebirth)Collectible Diplopia iconDiplopia and Rune of JeraRune of Jera function as expected in Shops, generating free pickups/items.
  • The Shopkeeper that spawns in the Shop can be bombed for potential rewards.
    • (except in Rebirth) Special ShopkeeperSpecial Shopkeeper can replace the regular shopkeeper at a chance, which can drop better rewards.
  • If the Shop item pool is depleted, Shops will begin to draw from the Treasure Room item pool.
    • Collectible Breakfast iconBreakfast will spawn once the Treasure Room item pool is depleted.
  • (except in Repentance) A total of 9 Shops maximum can be entered during a normal run — two in BasementBasement/etc., two in CavesCaves/etc., two in DepthsDepths/etc., two in WombWomb/etc. with the (in Afterbirth † and Repentance)Silver DollarSilver Dollar, and one in (except in Rebirth)??????.
