With pink confetti raining from the ceiling, and heart-shaped balloons floating through the corridors, there is no mistaking what season is upon us. It's Valentine's day! Come and join us in celebrating this holiday of love and let those close to you know just how much they mean to you - be it your partner, family, friends, or pets.

User stores are the backbone of the HEX economy, and it's time they take a step forward with a handful of quality of life improvements.
When editing your store, you now have the option to sort the items within it one of five different ways: Old to New (default), New to Old, A to Z, Low to High, and High to Low. These changes will be reflected on both the store supplies page as well as the main view when others visit your store.
Speaking of the store supplies page, you can now view the Owl Search details for each item in your store by clicking the new magnifying glass link to the left of the pricing boxes for galleons, sickles, and knuts. You'll find the same information about an item as you would searching for it in the top bar (which is now mobile friendly, too). We've also added auto-formatting commas to the galleon input boxes when pricing items above 1,000 galleons, which should mean less time counting digits. (You can still use "k" and "m" to quickly price things in thousands and millions of galleons, too.)
You'll find a few small improvements to the wizard money/store history page as well. The input boxes where you withdraw your money will now auto-populate with the amount of galleons, sickles, and knuts waiting for you to collect, allowing you get paid that much sooner. Your store history (also finally mobile friendly) will now display up to 700 entries, up from 500, to bring it in line with the maximum store size.
To celebrate these improvements and provide yet another reason to expand your store if you aren't sold already, we're offering 50% off all store upgrades for the next two weeks. This offer will last from today, February 8 through February 22, 11:59 PM. You can learn more about the cost of store upgrades and what they unlock in the Knowledge Base.
There's never been a better time to be a shopkeeper. Take a portkey to your store and get stocking!
