The reason for this is that there is a check on the store items when you place that that looks to see if it is "indoors". Those little sun shade things on the main street stores act as a ceiling and make it think its inside. So unless we add those shades, no. Adding shades to those is not something I have planned either. I'm not a huge fan of the outdoor shop items anyways.Would it be possible to increase the area at which you can place items at the stores at the Apartments? (I cant remember the names but its the ones you go into from the lobby)
The main 2 stores let you put items on the outside window, but that isnt very possible at these other stores.
Sorry if that was awfully explained, hopefully it makes sense..
