Open All Hours

Shopkeeper Albert Arkwright has one main focus -- to make as much money as he can while spending as little as possible. He packs his small corner grocery with as much merchandise as he can. His nephew, Granville, serves as Arkwright's glorified errand boy, rising early to open the shop and staying late to close it. When not focused on his shop, Arkwright woos the nurse across the street. Each episode ends with Arkwright closing his shop and reflecting upon his day.
