Storyline

In an effort to boost sales figures, the staff have been asked to come in at the 'crack of dawn' in the hope of catching more customers on their way to work. The sales skyrocket, and it looks as if the new early opening will become permanent. Throuhgly displeased with the thought, the staff steal the previous weeks figures from Mr. Rumbold's office and hatch a plan to not sell any more items, but as Mr.Grainger says, how can you not sell things if people want to buy them?
