The Grand Department Store[1] (alternatively Fourside Grand)[2] is a department store in Fourside in EarthBound. It is extremely large, and even the clerks working there get lost.[2] The variety of items in the store are praised, but their prices are often criticized.[3] The department store also serves as a small dungeon after being visited for the first time.


The first floor is the service area where the player can use the ATM or payphone. The right clerk sells tickets to the Topolla Theater while the left clerk is where items can be returned. On the second floor is the food court which contains a grocery store and a burger shop. An arms dealer can also be found in the back warehouse.

The third floor has a drugstore and a shop where weapons can be bought, and the fourth floor sells toys and sporting goods. In the back room is the office where the Dept. Store Spook is fought.


On the first visit to Fourside, the store is closed. A man outside states that ever since Geldegarde Monotoli became mayor, the store had been having strange happenings. Later the store re-opens and Ness and his friends can shop there. However, upon leaving, Paula will be kidnapped and a blackout will occur. All of the people in the store vanish during the blackout, and the store becomes flooded with enemies. The blackout was caused by the Dept. Store Spook, who kidnapped Paule, and requests Ness to head to the top floor to rescue Paula.

Ness confrounts the Dept. Store Spook in the office, but Paula is nowhere to be found. Ness the fights and defeats it, in which it states that Paula is with Monotoli. After the Spook is defeated and the blackout ends, it is later blamed on the mouse found on the first floor.[4]

  • Should Paula have the Pencil Eraser in her inventory when she is kidnapped and after defeating Dept. Store Spook, Ness would receive a call from Tracy once the party is outside of the store, telling him that the Escargo Express had received the Pencil Eraser from her and tells that the party can get it from her directly or from the company's deliveryman. This is because the item is required to progress through the Monkey Cave.
