Cecil Slinger is the manager of Supafare, a small supermarket somewhere in London. He tries to run his branch smoothly, but his somewhat pompous demeanour isn't entirely conducive to a successful career, and a staff comprised of idiots and layabouts don't help matters much!

His staff include the rabble-rousing wannabe shop-steward Mr Hardie; trainee manager and recent graduate Mr Christian; his unattentive secretary, Sylvia; a head of security who helped a thief unbolt one of their CCTV cameras; and a host of useless shelfstackers and bimbo checkout girls.
