He quit his earlier career in pharmaceuticals to open a store in the mall called The Leftorium, which specializes in products for left-handed people. He does this because he's left-handed himself. It sells items that are made only for left-handed people, from left-handed can openers to a left-handed car, of which only three were ever made. The Leftorium first appeared on the second floor of the Springfield Mall, but in the episode "Last Tap Dance in Springfield," it was on the first floor. Known competitors of The Leftorium include Leftopolis and Left-Mart (a parody of Wal-Mart). Many of the Leftorium's products are superflously labelled as "left handed", such as left handed coffee mugs, pens, or notebook pads.
