Shopping malls are economic buildings in Tropico 4. Shopping malls are used to sell luxury goods, which are essential in keeping an advanced, first world population happy; citizens have a hidden need for them, similar to their needs for healthcare and food. Unfortunately, Tropico can't manufacture luxury goods itself; it needs to import them from China, which is often very expensive. Having good relations with China can help lower the cost.

Work Modes

  • Normal Store: The shopping mall is open for everyone to use. This opens it up to tourists, allowing them to satisfy their need to shop and earning Tropico some money,
  • People's Store: The shopping mall is reserved only for Tropico nationals. This keeps tourists from depleting the island's supply of luxury goods.
  • Outlet Store: The shopping mall only sells products for women. The service quality is increased by 20 and all its prices are doubled, but only women will ever visit it.

Radio

Penultimo: To provide us with better things, El Presidente has built the biggest mall in the Caribbean.

Sunny Flowers: But aren't you worried about the spirit of blatant consumerism... [ in a zombie-like tone ] shoes...must...get...to...mall.

Penultimo: Wait you can't... (exasperated and apologetic) and now for some music.
