If you continue to read you will learn how to add values like this to the products grid.

Sticky Sidebar in Magento

An idea for writing this blog post inspired me for implementing this feature on two Magento 1 projects, on first project it was one of many changes that were part of A/B testing, on the second one it was part of creating a new visual identity for clients store.
