In Depth Information
Marty is known for singing classic music over the intercom and juggling his fruit for customers. He makes dramatic entrances and even plays out his favorite sitcoms with fruit. Some would say Marty lives in the past, but his age would say otherwise, since it appears he is in his late 20's to 30's. From what is known, Marty is single. Marty has stated he used to sing in a 1980's themed band called Love Harder. He also admits the band was not from the eighties, but just tried to sound like the eighties.
Marty keeps Health Inspector Arlen Johnson locked in his produce cooler because Arlen tried to fail his produce department for an unknown reason. One can assume it is because how he juggles his fruit. He seems to have no hard feelings against Arlen though personally.
