Sir David Jason heads the cast as Granville, who has inherited a grocery shop from his beloved but miserly Uncle Arkwright. Granville now runs the shop with his son Leroy, a cheerful, good looking lad with more female admirers than Granville ever had. Granville sees him as the shop assistant but he sees himself as the head of IT.

Granville has brought up Leroy himself, with the help of a lot of the local women, after he arrived on the doorstep as the surprise result of a one night stand in Blackpool 25 years ago.

The show follows a day in the life of the shop and its customers including (retired) Nurse Gladys Emmanuel, and 'the black widow' - aka Mrs Featherstone.

We watch Granville's antics as he comes up with new schemes to make money and continues his pursuit of old flame Mavis under the beady eye of her sister Madge.
