This Shopkeeper runs the Edgeville General Store, located in Edgeville. He is assisted by a shop assistant.
When right-clicking on the shopkeeper, you have two options other than examine: Talk to, or Trade. Clicking trade sends you directly to the store's wares menu, where you can buy and sell goods. Clicking talk to is a more roundabout fashion of this that ends in him explaining the player/store stock tab.
The shopkeeper also plays a small part in Evil Dave's Big Day Out, in which the player must replace an assortment of broken items. These items include a tattered old broom, vegetable chopping knife, and dishes. He replaces them free of charge believing they were broken when Dave was trying to be helpful.
