  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

The Greatest Store in the World is a gripping, entertaining, poignant Christmas special for all the family. Who needs a toy when you can have the whole toy department? Why watch one television when you can watch hundreds? Who needs to write to Santa Claus when he's right there in his Grotto? A cold, homeless, present-less, cracker-less Christmas is transformed into every child's fantasy when a mother takes her two children to live in the greatest store in the world. But what starts as a spirited search for refuge, becomes a nail-biting adventure, as 'away in a manger' turns into a race against time, crime and a wicked Santa Claus and his malicious elfin side-kick
