Trivia / Retail

  • Colbert Bump: The strip seems to have gained a considerable fandom due to repeated promotion by The Punchline.
  • Contest Winner Cameo: The character of Keith was named for the winner of a contest on Cooper's Retail Blog.
  • What Could Have Been: The cover for the book Pretending You Care originally had Marla tending a customer. However, the publisher feared this would make it seem the book is aimed at women-only, so the creator had to replace Marla with Cooper, which didn't make sense because he only very rarely works on the sales floor.
