The shopfitter arrived to refurbish the Corner Shop, which had just been purchased by Fred Elliott from his estranged wife Maureen. However, Maureen's mother Maud Grimes learned that Fred had persuaded a friend to put in a low offer for the business, in order that Fred's slightly higher price would appear generous. Seeking revenge, Maud dropped a dead fish into one of the shop counter units while Fred and the shopfitter were not looking. The shopfitter subsequently sealed up the unit, and Fred's new business venture got off to a less than fragrant start, as customers were repulsed by the objectionable smell. Triumphant Maud eventually admitted her sabotage.
