What does COP stand for?

Close of play

COP stands for "close of play," which is typically used to refer to the end of a business day. It is similar to "COB" where the "play" is tongue in cheek for "work."

You will most likely only see COP in work-related emails sent by bosses who think it's a funnier version of COB. It is typically utilized to express the desire for something to be completed by the end of the workday.

However, it may also just refer to the hours that a business is open for, especially in-store. COP may be interchanged with the more common "EOD" acronym.
