ABOUT RETAIL

Retail was a newspaper comic strip created by Norm Feuti. It was distributed by King Features from January 2006 to February 2020.  It appeared in about 90 newspapers throughout the US and Canada during its 14-year run.

Retail presented a humorous look at the retail industry by chronicling the daily events at the fictitious Grumbel’s department store. Drawing from Norm’s 15 years of experience working in retail management, the humor of Retail played out through the day-to-day trials and triumphs of four main Grumbel’s department store employees (Marla, Cooper, Val, and Stuart) and the customers they encounter.

Norm retired the comic in 2020 to focus on writing and illustrating children’s books. This website contains a complete archive of the Retail comic strip.
