Season 1
In the 1970s, the Ferrone's humble cornerstore has transformed to be more like today's mixed business convenience store. The hours are long and competition is fierce.
The 1950s and 60s bring a radical boom in technology, mass production and commercialisation. But watchout Ferrones, the Supermarket is coming! This newly introduced retail phenomenon is a major challenger to the corner shop.
The Ferrone Family are put to the test as they live through the highs and lows of running a corner shop through one of the most tumultuous periods of Australian history - from the roaring 20s to the late 1940s.
The Ferrones go back from the 1850s to the 1920s, to see how society changed through the lens of the corner shop. They traverse gender roles, manual labour, preserving food, using British currency and imperial measurements.
