They set him up in a vacant lot and soon has several customers but it also raises 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
