Episode summaryEdit

The staff of the Gents' Ready Mades department at Grace Brothers are none too pleased to find out that they now have to share their department floor with Ladies' Intimate Apparel.

Mr Lucas, the newest member of the staff, might like the idea of the ladies on the floor - but old Mr Grainger certainly doesn't. When Mrs Slocombe starts demanding the impossible - the centre display stand - the first of many battles ensues.
