Pig Shops are naturally spawning Structures exclusive to the Hamlet DLC, where the player can use Oincs to buy items. Each shop specializes in a different category of goods. Some Pig Shops can only be found in Swinesbury Pig City on the first island, others only in the Palace City on the second island. If the player obtains the Key to the City, all Pig Shops becomes craftable in the City Planning Tab, except for special buildings such as Swinesbury Academy and the Palace.
Shopkeepers inside of the Pig Shops restock items as soon as the player buys anything, and they change inventory after a few days. Each item has the same chance of appearing. Items that have been stolen by the player will not be replaced.
Pig Shops are a safe place to hide from Vampire Bat waves, Darkness, and Rain. When the player are in a shop, there is no loss of Sanity from Dusk and Night time. Pig Shops close at Night, which means one cannot enter a shop during this period, but if the player is already inside, then they can stay overnight.
Attacking shopkeepers will spawn two Pig Guards with Halberds. They will keep attacking the player until they are disposed of, and will remain present even if the player leaves and then enters the building again.
