When door-to-door salesman Bert Miller returns to Mayberry, Barney and Andy decide to help him out a little. If truth be told, Bert likes selling but is always hesitant to push his goods on anyone. (Soft sell is the only way he knows how to do business.) They set him up in a vacant lot, which soon has several customers, raising the ire of crotchety old department store owner Ben Weaver, who cites municipal ordinances against selling on the street. Andy decides to have a little fun with old Ben, and eventually Bert has a booth to sell out of. When old Ben decides to run Bert out of business by lowering his prices, Andy comes up with an even better way of helping Bert out. Written by
