Billy Bargain

Ena Sharples finds many causes for the complaint on her first and only visit to the new supermarket

Billy Bargain's Supermart was a US-style supermarket that opened for business on Rosamund Street in October 1961.

This caused great concern to Florrie Lindley who worried about the effect that it would have on her own Corner Shop, especially when Ena Sharples took delight in telling her that it would kill her trade. Florrie fretted as she questioned her customers when she noticed their change of shopping habits but had to hide her hurt from them. She needn't have worried - Elsie Tanner, Linda Cheveski and Valerie Tatlock all tried the new enterprise but didn't like the change, missing the lack of personal service. Even Ena returned, after causing as much havoc as she could muster with her complaints about the till service. The latter was the one thing that Florrie was jealous of: she had to manually add up the prices before entering them into her till and envied the more modern appliance that the supermarket enjoyed.
