Gerry McNulty has invested 26 years in his flagship furniture shop in Roscommon, which has been brought to its knees by the economic downturn. With a massive 70% decrease in turnover, the business is barely keeping afloat and there are jobs at risk. Gerry has been given no other option but to turn to his staff for help. With a donation of 50,000 Euros Gerry is taking a massive gamble that his staff can bring his business back from the brink.

With barely even a website to the McNulty name, business expert Norah Casey encourages the staff to get online to publicise the company nationwide. But with only two weeks can they make a dent in the World Wide Web? Is throwing 1000 Euro in cash around the streets of Roscommon in a wacky PR Stunt the answer?

The shop is dated and packed with furniture. With Gerry stepping back, the staff decided to completely overhaul the shop but they soon find out they may have bitten off more than they can chew. and with a grand reopening looming the staff struggle to put the shop back together in time. The remainder of the staff decide a brand new homeware section in the store would be just the thing to get new younger customers. But with a target to offer a wedding list service will they get any engaged couples signed up in time?
