A physical layout of the original PLAZA. It was anchored by J.C. Penney on the north and Britts on the south, with a freestanding Publix supermarket filling out the merchandising mix.


Britts was an offshoot of the J.J. Newberry 5 & 10 chain. Stores in the Britts division were larger and much more upscale than their Newberrys dime store counterparts. By the demise of Britts, in early 1982, other stores had opened in Florida, as well as in the states of Alabama, Arizona, Tennessee, Texas, New York, New Hampshire, Maryland, Vermont, Washington and California.
