The store closed on June 28, and Cooper was shocked to receive Stuart's congratulations for a job well done, complete with a promise to provide the closing cash bonus as previously negotiated.

Cooper has built a small lounge on the roof of the Grumbel's out of old patio furniture dubbed "Cooper's Lounge" and also spends time constructing "Box Art" out of empty cardboard boxes.

Some examples of his art include robots, castles, mazes and even a "Great Wall of Boxes." He's a fan of science fiction and geek culture, and often wears Halloween costumes based on obscure movie, TV or comic book characters that other staff members don't recognize, much to Cooper's frustration.

Cooper harbored a crush on Val for years before finally asking her on a date in February 2011.

However, the name Grumbel's is a parody of real life department store Gimbels, which closed in 1987.

Marla and her fiance Scott were married in June 2011.

Their first child, a daughter named Fiona Jane Garrison was born on April 9, 2012.

As part of his new duties, Cooper does initial interviews for a new stockroom employee.
