Julie and Richard are gearing up for the supermarket awards, and the former is concerned about the drop in the number of customers since the makeover.

Poor Gavin, meanwhile, is a shadow of his former self and, following an encounter with a shoplifter, makes a big decision about his life. A familiar face stops by to see Katie, too.
