PlotEdit

Florrie's new look shop/post office opens and Martha is her first customer. She draws her pension and buys a tin of best salmon. She invites Ena and Minnie to tea and they realise she is up to something. Dennis is late for his first day in the shop. Jerry is shamed in front of Myra into agreeing to the new furniture from Frank. Dennis turns up for work but can't remember where anything is stored and has to be reminded by the customers. Len winds him up by changing his order. Laurie and Len almost come to blows in the Rovers when Laurie insists the contract to work on the club is adhered to and Harry has to step in. The Rovers regulars are surprised when Martha buys a bottle of port. Martha dolls herself up and puts out her best china for tea. Ena and Minnie realise what she's up to when Ted Ashley arrives. Florrie is worn down by Dennis as he nearly wrecks the shop. Lucille is upset when Eddie becomes evasive about taking her out again. Ted is embarrassed by Martha's attention as he barely remembers the three ladies from his days at school. While Martha's back is turned, Ena invites him to the Rovers. Harry asks Len to keep Eddie occupied so as to stop him spending so much time with Lucille. Ena and Minnie also dress up for Ted. Albert introduces Ted to the regulars which keeps him away from the ladies in the snug. Len is stood up when Joyce and Eddie go off together.
