Over my decades in bookstores I can't say that I've looked for a particular publisher, but it can have added value once you pick it up because you're interested in the title/author/cover or whatever... as in "Hey, these guys usually publish good books" if it was someone you were unfamiliar with. I definitely remember Del Rey having that cachet back in the day.
