    Un-Supermarket follows the whimsical ups and downs of three jaded cashiers at their local grocery store. Ever wonder what your average retail worker is really thinking?

Though at times cynical, the characters have a sense of humour about their positions and the situations they face on a day to day basis. After all, cashiering is a monotonous job, sometimes you just have to make a joke and not take yourself so seriously... The main characters Val, Rick, and Tish sure don't!
