    Toys is the only other department at Grace Brothers to be seen in the entire series. Part of the Radio Department (and Packing) was seen through CCTV in the final season, while other parts of the store shown on screen were the boardroom, management offices, basement, nurse's station, roof, the fifth floor (vacant at the time), three "apartments" on the top floor, and, of course, the canteen. At various points in the series, Sporting, Cosmetics and Shoes were temporarily moved onto the Mens and Ladies floor, while many other departments were mentioned but never seen (although their staff were).

Amongst the programmes hurriedly brought forward to fill the sudden gaps in BBC1's programming schedules was the as-yet untransmitted Comedy Playhouse (UK) edition "Are You Being Served?". It proved popular enough for a full series to be commissioned.
