A physical layout showing the Metcalfe's Market at Madison, Wisconsin's HILLDALE MALL. The store, something of a Shopping Mall Supermarket survivor, has operated in a food retail capacity since the October 1962 dedication of the shopping hub. At that time, it was a 20,000 square foot A & P. It went through rebrandings in 1975, 1979 and 2009 and was renovated -and enlarged- in 1990. Today, the location encompasses 30,500 square feet.


Upstate New York's Wegmans chain is the nation's newest Shopping Mall Supermarket operator.

We end our section with a layout showing the Wegmans at Greater Boston's NATICK MALL. The store (which took the place of a shuttered J.C. Penney) opened for business in the spring of 2017.
