Cue the stereotypical shopping music - like for example this one!

The Mercator Department Store is the # 1 address for shopping in Gernsbeck!
(For example, they seem to have a quite large collection of sun glasses... ;-) )

And so Yalala joins the 21st Century. :)

Did these ladies seriously not notice the big blue tent thingy? Ah, well, I'm sure it won't come back to bite them... :)

This "tent" is supposed to be a building... (And thus logically not something of note at least for Kanny and Mira, because it has been there for years.) We will see more of it pretty soon...

Ah. Dreadfully sorry. It makes much more sense that they don't scrutinize it then. :)

This building supposed to be the same as the one here, at the left edge of the first panel, which in turn was supposed to be a homage of the Tyrell Building from Blade Runner.
I guess I overshot the mark a bit in my attempt to show a distinctive looking building...

Everywhere these ladies go, the happenin' be happenin'.

I'll take a Blade Runner ref any day!

Sometimes, even using an escalator can be a small adventure... :-D

I wonder if Eric gets paid for this "celebrity endorsement"...

I lost it at the fourth panel.

Also, that building under the tent. Upcoming plooooot!

I imagine that escalators can be fun for somebody who has never used one before!! :-D

And yep, upcoming plooooot!! (Though BTW, the "tent" is the building! The facade is out of glass, as we'll see soon...)
