So I created another hood and set up a home business there. This is May, the test shop owner. She is a randomized sim and she is a cutie! ^^
Anyway, despite May’s sad face, her home business was immediately visited by the other playable family in the hood. That concludes that my BaCC hood is somehow corrupted when it comes to home business. I tried starting a business on one of the other lots but with the same result. :( It’s not like that I really need the home business to work but in a BaCC they’re more important than in any of my other hoods.
