Mike decides to frighten the girls by bringing computers into the factory. Sally Waterman hopes to find something out about the Council's new shopping plaza for a Weatherfield Recorder story. Mike tells the girls that he's going to tattoo barcodes onto their arms so the computer can check them in and out. Ivy and Vera are horrified. Sally tells Ken that she appreciates the way he lets her write articles. A debt collector tells Billy that if he doesn't repay the £3,000 in seven days Peter Lasalle will prosecute. Alf doesn't like the idea of the shopping plaza because of competition. He decides to oppose it at the planning meeting and drums up support to kill it.
