* This is the type of store Yuuko the Dimension Witch runs in ''{{xxxHOLiC}}'', although it deviates slightly from the norm in that it ''will'' be there tomorrow. The key to being able to see and enter it, however, is that you must have need of Yuuko's wish-granting powers. Presumably this is very convenient for dealing with encyclopedia salesmen. [[spoiler: She does eventually say that the shop was built ''specifically'' for the sake of helping Syaoran and Sakura-hime of TsubasaReservoirChronicle, racking up magic credits from the wishes she grants until the day they needed to be used.]]
* One of these traps Sasami in an episode of ''TenchiInTokyo''. (Although, neither she nor Tenchi had ever been in the area before, so nobody knew that the shop was magical.)

* In Manga/{{Naruto}}, [[CoolOldGuy Jiraiya]] sneaks into [[CityOfCanals Amegakure]] and sets up a pub on one of the lower levels of the city to lure in two Amegakure ninja. He plays the role of barkeeper before throwing off his [[PaperThinDisguise ridiculous disguise]], then the pub [[MalevolentArchitecture turns into a toad]].
* In ''MermaidMelodyPichiPichiPitch Pure'', there were two instances of this, both set up by the villains. One was a videoke house (that somehow had the heroines' songs in their list), and a fortuneteller's tent. Both in the same place, but not at the same time, of course. One character even noted it.

* Kaede gets the coffee mug that starts off the whole ''Wagamama Fairy * MirumoDePon!'' series, but only in the anime. In the manga, her mother gives it to her as a souvenir from her recent trip.

* In the CreepyPasta "Welcome Home", there is the cozy little bakery "Welcome Home". Similar to "Needful Things", the building and lot us there already, Maria just moves in and spruces it up a bit. And when she gets what she came for [[spoiler:some of the local children whom she renders into fresh ingredients and paint]] she vanishes, leaving the now-empty building the ruin it was when she first arrived.

* The Shop of the Aether and Neither, from ''[[{{Spellsinger}} The Day of the Dissonance]]'', is located in a town that can't be found unless it's really needed. After shoppers have departed, it promptly vanishes and [[VanishingVillage takes the village with it]].

* ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'', [[Characters/SCPFoundation Characters/SCPFoundation]]
** Foundation Site 19, according to one of the propositions for SCP-001.
** The people that [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-385 SCP-385]] was confiscated from are implied to have purchased it at one of these.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1940 SCP-1940]] is a bizarre example, a shop that will appear in ''any'' enclosure, from an abandoned house to someone's sock drawer, and materialize a salesman who will try and sell everything inside the enclosure to passers-by. Any claims to the property inside the enclosure will be met with paperwork demonstrating that the enclosure and everything in it is property of Light Courier Enterprises. What's worse, any merchandise bought from the store will cause another instance to appear within six hours.
