Storyline

There's a big secret at Grace Brothers, apparently the store might be taken over by a competitor. To discuss the matter, a board room meeting has been organized. Convinced that the new company will give them all the boot, the staff are quick to search for new jobs. But then the staff are informed that there is a chance that Grace Brothers can be saved if enough shareholders go against the take-over. Unfortunately the four shareholders who's vote would save Grace Bros aren't able to attend the meeting, so in a effort to save the store, and their jobs, the staff volunteer to act as the shareholders and veto the take-over.
