Eastern Shops is the highest part of Shops Island. It is home to the Mario Mountains, which spans along the Penguin County border and also is home to Chilly Peaks, located in Bro Town. This state also houses the mines, and is the location of the Shops Island Gold Rush. Geologists predict there are as many as 50 million ounces of gold underground. However, most residents disregard this information, as most of the gold is said to be in the Chilly Peaks, which is tough and unforgiving terrain as it is.
- See main article: Mario Mountains
The Chilly Peaks were first found in September 2010. Many efforts to reach the tallest mountain of the peaks, Mario Mountain, claimed 5 lives and took over a year. Then, in April 2012, an undisclosed trekker made it to the top of the mountain and claimed it Mario Mountain, in honor of Mario Arkay, the vice-commander of Shops Island at the time.
Days after the first summit, many hikers and trekkers hiked up to the peak, placing strobe lights at the top in hopes to build something there. So, on Earth Day 2012, pyrotechnics experts brought explosives to the peak and blew the top off of the mountain. Then, within 2 weeks, a new recycling plant had been built, officially christened as the SIA Recycling Center.
