The Ultishop is a store wherein the shopper can purchase anything that his or her heart desires for prices the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else. The Ultishop's slogan is also its mission statement: We Sell What You Want for the Price that You Want, meaning that we sell nearly everything for the price of your choosing, no more and no less. It should be noted that the Ultishop sells only those things that can be sold; some things of a morally objectionable nature are not available for purchase.
The exterior of the Ultishop is similar to that of a massive castle, including parapets and towers, built out of light gray stones shot through with gold and silver threads. The front doors (large, gold-and-silver decorated oak polished to an mirror finish) are very durable and capable of being reinforced by polished steel bars that slide down from the stone above the doorways. On either side of the Ultishop proper are attached two smaller (though still very large) buildings built in the same castle-like manner. They have no exterior doors and are accessed from the interior of the building.
Sales Floor Description
The Ultishop Sales Floor is immeasurably large, simply for the fact that it is infinitely large, a demiplane unto itself. With a floor of pale, wet-looking marble shot through with gold and silver thread and walls of burnished mahogany decorated with precious metals and gems, the Sales Floor looks less like a department store than it does the temple of an ancient and powerful deity of wealth. The majority (impossible, of course, as the space is infinite) of the Sales Floor is taken up by the many (infinite) aisles that hold the Ultishop's (infinite) stock. The shelves, like the walls, are made of mahogany and are decorated with precious metals and gems. Due to the sheer mind-boggling amount of the items for sale, two handy computer terminals are available for public use that allow shoppers to search for the aisle and shelf containing the item that they desire. At the farthest end of the Sales Floor are the Sales Counters, where shoppers pay for their purchases. The counters to the left and right of the center counter are gold decorated with silver whereas the center counter is platinum decorated with gold. Behind the counters are two locked doors, one of which opens to a staircase that leads to the Upper Levels and is available to all employees and one that leads to the Basement. Only the Distinguished Gentleman has a key to the Basement. Because the Sales Floor is infinite in size a shopper is always an equal distance from any other point. This insures that no matter where the shopper is, he or she is no more than a short walk away from his or her destination.
The Ultishop Inn is for those that want a good night sleep. Like the Sales Floor the Inn is infinitely large to accommodate the many hundreds of people that stay there. The floors of the Inn and its rooms are a lush, soft burgundy carpet. The walls are made of dark, heavily polished cherry wood. The rooms are spacious (they are, in fact, infinitely large) and include a bedroom (with king-sized bed and walk-in closet), kitchenette (with cabinets, stove, sink, dishwasher and refrigeration unit), small study (with a desk, chair, shelves and computer) and a bathroom (sink, toilet, bath and shower). Next to the light switch in the bedroom is a small panel of many buttons which allows the tenet to customize his or her room to their heartís content.
The Ultishop Restaurant is a one-of-a-kind establishment wherein hungry shoppers can order nearly any food or drink that they could possibly desire (some foods, such as could be made from sapient beings, are not available. Should they be requested suitable replacements will be offered). Shoppers are encouraged to find a table for themselves (as the space is, of course, infinite) whereupon a waiter will be dispatched to take food and drink orders. The floor of the Restaurant is covered in a soft, deep blue carpet and the walls are painted a glossy indigo. The effect is that the entire Restaurant appears dimly lit and moderately romantic.

Ultishop Security Knutz and Bholtz (steel-plated iron golems): These two silent automatons function as The Distinguished Gentlemanís personal bodyguards. They look and function like OmniGuard Leaders, though they do not share the Leaderís connection to the Guard Troopers.
The Ultishop Security Force: 100 guards patrol the Ultishop, inside and out. They are charged with protecting the store, its wares, and its personnel. They are organized into ten groups of ten; the 90 Guard Troopers being led, in groups of nine, by one Guard Leader per group.

Francis raises an eyebrow.
That sounds ominous. I picked up three outfits myself, and a swimsuit of my own. And a couple of magazines with ideas for modifications, should the need arise. _________________ ITEM OF THE [TIME PERIOD]
