J. Pinwright owns the world's smallest multiple-store, but life is far from easy. His attractive daughter, fierce rival, Ralph the octogenarian messenger boy, and members of staff (trying to be helpful) hinder him day-by-day.

Staff member Mrs Sigsbee was much in the same vein as Mrs. Slocombe from Are You Being Served?, being highly outrageous in her time.
