- Not to be confused with the store in Plants vs. Zombies, Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies.

The store serves as a general shop in Plants vs. Zombies 2 where real life money and gems can be used to purchase different items, plants, upgrades, sprouts and even coins. With the 3.3.2 update, on March 11, 2015, the store was redone, and new tabs were added as individual shops. Currently, there are seven different stores under the store. There are also practical shops that can be reached through tapping on gems, coins or desired wealth on top of the screen but the options are much more limited in these quick shops. There is also a button under the store that can be used to reach the website of Plants vs. Zombies merchandise. Discounts on the prices are frequently made and announced through full screen advertisements.
Coin Shop is the first shop tab inside the store. There, the game's main currency, coins can be bought using real life currencies. Coins bought in the store are only bough for the current profile of the player and cannot be shared through different profiles. In the game, Coins are frequently dropped randomly by zombies and can also be earned in Zen Garden as plants give coins when they grow. There are six different options when buying coins in this shop. Each one has a different description and the more coins player buys at once, more discount there is, hence there is always a "Best Deal" disclaimer on the most expensive option. Quick coin shop menu can be reached by tapping the money displayer on top of the screen. Players can also buy coins from the Bundle Shop, where they are sold alongside plants and upgrades for advantageous prices.
An option marked with * can also be reached through quick coin shop menu.
Gem Shop is the second tab in the store where gems can be bought using real life currencies. Gems bought in the store are only bought for the current profile of the player. There are five different deals in this shop. The deals get more advantageous as more gems are bought at the same time. The descriptions of the each deal are comedic. Quick Gem Shop can be reached by tapping on the gem count display.
An option marked with * can also be reached through quick gem shop menu.
Plant Shop is the third tab in the store where premium plants can be bought. These plants are unique to this shop and otherwise cannot be selected for normal levels if not bought. These plants can also be bought without stopping by the shop; through the almanac or seed selection screen. This is the only store where two different currencies are used; real life money and gems. Some plants are sold with a set real life money cost, the others are sold in gems. Plants sold in gems are not shared with other profiles of the player while plants sold in money are shared with any profile of the player. Some plants are only sold for a limited time period, others are always on the store. Sometimes, some plants are sold in a discount prize or a premium plant for gems, depending on the current event. Plants can also be bought from the Bundle Store, packed up with upgrades and coins.
Plants marked with * are only available for a limited time.
Plants marked with ^ were formerly costing gems, but such sales have ended.
Sprout Shop is the fourth tab of the Store where plant sprouts can be bought for the Zen Garden using gems. There are currently five different deals for sprouts. Sprouts bought are only available for the usage of player's current profile thus cannot be shared with other accounts. There are currently five different options on the Sprout Shop. Fast Sprout Shop can be reached from the Zen Garden, by tapping the sprout count displayer, where there are only 3 options and 25 Sprouts is shown to be the best deal.
|3||Some Sprouts for the garden!||20|
|5*||A handful of Sprouts!||30|
|10*||Sprouts and more Sprouts!||50|
|25*||A garden full of Sprouts!||80|
|50||Wow, that's a lot of sprouts!||150|
An option marked with * can also be reached through quick sprout shop menu.
Upgrade Shop is the fifth tab on the store. There is a total of four store-exclusive upgrades in the game that can be found in this shop. Real life currencies are used in this shop for buying them. Upgrades bought here will be shared with all the profiles of the player and enhance the gameplay experience. Upgrades resemble golden trophies and can be viewed in the "Upgrades" tab of the Almanac. Players can buy the shop-exclusive upgrades directly from the Almanac too, without stopping buy the Upgrade Shop. Upgrades can also be found in the Bundle Shop, packed with some plants and coins.
Bundle Shop is the sixth tab of the store where bundles, containing packs of coins, plants and upgrades, are sold together. Bundles are sold with real life currencies. Plants and Upgrades bought inside a bundle are shared with all the profiles of the player while coins only cover their current profile. Bundles are more expensive than each of their individual components or their pairs but cheaper than all 3 combined. Therefore, buying a bundle is recommended only if the player desires to buy all three pieces of the bundle. If the player has already bought a plant or an upgrade that is a part of a bundle individually from other shops, that bundle will no longer be available for the player. Currently, there are three main bundles. Note that there are no bundle exclusive items and every item inside a bundle can also be bought individually from the Coin Shop, Plant Shop or Upgrade Shop, though buying bundles is a better deal than buying the three items individually.
Costume Shop is the seventh and final tab of the store where several shop-exclusive plant costumes are sold for gems. While the prices may vary from one costume to another, most of the costumes cost 10 gems. Costumes bought are only kept for the current profile for the player hence cannot be shared. Unlike other costumes in the game, every costume sold here has a unique name and description tag. When a costume is bought here, the plant will automatically wear that costume. It can later be removed or replaced from the Almanac or Seed Selection Menu. Some costumes sold in this shop cannot be obtained in any other way. There are currently nine exclusive costumes in the store. Costumes are not limited and can be bought anytime the player wishes to. Also, some normally-obtainable costumes are sold.

Fresh Picks Shop
Fresh Picks Shop is the eighth tab of the store which was added in the 3.8.1 update, starting from Neon Mixtape Tour Piñata Parties. This shop displays limited special offers and uses a price tag as its symbol. The special offers of Imitater, Squash and Torchwood, being able to be bought with gems for a limited time, were featured in this shop, along with other offers such as buying boosts, 50,000 coins, bundles, and/or a newer premium plant (such as Cactus, Electric Blueberry, Jack O' Lantern, etc.) The contents of this shop constantly changes, as the offers last for a limited time.
- Before March 11, 2015, there were only four tabs under the store; Coins, Plants, Upgrades, and Bundles. With the introduction of gems, options were increased since gems can be used to buy costumes, sprouts and some plants.
- Before this change, the tabs lacked symbols and only the names of the shop were written.
- After Toadstool's release, the colors for each tab, while in the same location, feature different sections, so the following occurs:
- Plants are where coins used to be;
- Costumes are where gems used to be;
- Bundles are where plants used to be;
- Upgrades are where sprouts used to be;
- Gems are where upgrades used to be;
- Coins are where bundles used to be;
- Sprouts are where costumes used to be.
- Although the second coin offer says it'll buy you a "thing or two", you can actually buy 50 Reveal Vases, 33 Butter Zombies, 20 Move Vases, 12 Power Zaps, 10 Power Tosses or Plant Food, 9 Power Snows, or 8 Power Fires with that.
- Though it might be based on upgrading plants.
