In one of his most lavish and elaborate 2-reel comedies, star comedian Larry Semon plays a department store clerk who almost demolishes his place of work whilst battling the store manager (Oliver Hardy) for the attention of salesgirl Kathleen Myers. Soon the store is a mess of teetering columns, falling ladders, an out of control revolving door, and irate customers. Bill Hauber did some of Semon's stunt work and the comedy also featured Fred DeSilva, James Donnelly, Spencer Bell (aka G. Howe Black), and Dorothy Wolbert. Leading lady Kathleen Myers had replaced Semon's wife Lucille Carlisle, both on screen and off.
