Mary Portas put store owner Tony Leach in the spotlight at Totally 2010
The programme is part of a third series in which Mary takes on high street stores in a bid to help them compete against the supermarkets and big chains.
This episode features Lightwater Homecare in Surrey, and shows store owner Tony Leach and assistant Jane Curtis being put through their paces in the product demonstration area at Totally by Mary, with help from Toolbank product manager Nigel Blow.
The Lightwater store has seen profits plunge by 60% in the last three years, as people reject their local shop in favour of the chain stores and warehouses. Mary battles resistance as she tries to focus the business and revolutionise DIY shopping and service.
