Lamps Plus makes appearance in South Park special


LOS ANGELES — Lighting and home furnishings retailer Lamps Plus, which shows up from time to time in pop culture, can claim a fictional, future location in the town of South Park, Colo.

Lamps Plus Plus, a futuristic version of Lamps Plus, can be seen in the new “South Park: Post Covid” special, available now on Paramount+.

The new South Park special, which debuted on Thanksgiving Day, shows a future adult Stan returning to the town of South Park. When he arrives, he sees well-known businesses renamed to include the words “Plus” or “Max” in their brands.

Among them is a Lamps Plus store sign with an additional Plus to become Lamps Plus Plus. In a release, Lamps Plus officials note that the storefront is a fairly accurate representation of one of the company’s 35 stores in seven Western states. The sign and extra Plus replicate the company’s logo font.

“We don’t know what the future holds, but we don’t currently plan to open another store in Colorado or add another ‘Plus’ to our brand name, as interesting as that seems,” said Lamps Plus founder and CEO Dennis Swanson. “We’re thankful that the brilliant South Park creators added our store to their special, appropriately streaming on Paramount+.”

Last year, Lamps Plus was one of the retailers represented in the mall scene in Wonder Woman 1984.

“Just as a fictitious Lamps Plus store appeared inside a mall in last year’s ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ we’re glad to see Lamps Plus continue its popularity among the entertainment industry, just as we frequently see our lighting on TV and in films, chosen by top set decorators,” Swanson said.
