When Jenny Connor (Sally Ann Matthews) receives some news that makes her question if she should sell up, she may be about to move to the other side of the bar in the Rovers Return pub on Coronation Street.
Peter (Chris Gascoyne) and Toyah (Georgia Taylor) sold the pub to Jenny and Johnny (Richard Hawley) in 2018.
Jenny took over as the only owner of the business after she and Johnny were divorced. After Johnny passed away during Super Soap Week in 2021, Jenny now manages the bar with assistance from Daisy (Charlotte Jordan), Gemma (Dolly-Rose Campbell), Sean (Antony Cotton), and Glenda (Jodie Prenger).
Coming up, Jenny tells Owen (Ben Hull) that the bar is having financial difficulties. Jenny is irritated by Owen’s advice to simply sell up and responds that this isn’t an option.
Stephen (Todd Boyce), sticking his nose in, recommends that instead of raising pricing, she might decrease the amount of food and drink that is served each serving.
At the end of the week, a dejected Jenny informs Daisy and Glenda that she is raising the bar and room rental costs per Stephen’s recommendation.
The customers are unimpressed by the price increase, and the employees is equally upset when they learn she is reducing their shifts.
Jenny later discovers Kirk (Andrew Whyment), Gary (Mikey North), George (Tony Maudsley), and Sean drinking and playing darts in Ed’s (Trevor Michael Georges) backyard following an unsuccessful attempt to host a darts night.
Jenny, who is now sobbing, has no choice but to inform Daisy that, given the current state of trade, they are only a few weeks away from permanently closing.
You’re crying, not you.
