For a start, at least relamp the store with all of the same kind of tubes. They are cheap and it will only take a few minutes to do. If there's daylight coming into the shop (either from windows or skylight) I'd get cool whites or preferably daylight balanced (6000 degree Kelvin) photo grade fluoros or if not them 3200 degree photo grade tubes. Gelling with plus green never seems to work from my experience as you're making a green light not a green spike. The best solution and most elegant is as was suggested in the first reply, namely to "poison" a flour set of lights, usually four-foot kinos with the same globes as are in the overheads and white balance. Voila, no gels, no mismatch and very little fuss and bother.
