In the movie "Rent", in the scene when the two ladies marry each other on the city sidewalk, you can see a CVS Pharmacy in the background. Also. in the New Year's Eve part, you can see them walking past a Nobody Beats The Wiz. It's very clear, too.

Wow, I am surprised no one has mentioned this already

Stop & Shop has been seen several times on Family Guy (Brian even pees in one). The exterior of the market is similar to the old style from years ago not the newer super stores. Brian also likes the breakfasts at Denny's

There is a futuristic McDonalds in Woody Allen's "Sleeper"

Kentucky Fried Chicken can be seen in "Superman II"

In the sitcom "Gimme a Break" Nell talks about being given a ride to K-mart

The music video "Rock the Casbah" by the Clash has a sheik and a rabbi running out of a Burger King with food

the chili's jingle was sang on austin powers, big boy was on austin powers, arby's was on a power rangers episode, a woolworth was shown in leprechaun 2, pizza the hut was the name of a character that was a pizza, and I cannot think of others.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobody_Beats_The_Wiz

In an episode of the 1990s sitcom Seinfeld, Elaine becomes unknowingly infatuated with "The Wiz," a man she soon realizes was the fictional pitchman for the Nobody Beats The Wiz chain.

How about the early part of "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" where he passes by a F.W. Woolworth that is near the bike store where he gets all his stuff???

In The Beginning of Gremlins Where Pete is Running to Work he runs past Montgomery Ward Having a Xmas Sale and People Window Shopping then in the end Stripe runs into Montgomery Ward and the scene Called "The Final Showdown" was shot in there you can see the signs on the inside of the store later in Back to the future the store was a car dealership

On "The Golden Girls", there are many references to stores. They mention 7-11, Wendy's, McDonald's, K-Mart, A&P, Neiman Marcus, Woolworth's, JCPenney, and Sears, and maybe others.

Also on "Everybody Loves Raymond", they mentioned Waldbaum's.

I distinctly remember Dorothy mentioning "the A&P" and one time where Sophia asked for a cough drop and Dorothy saying 'does it say Kmart on my back?'

Good stuff.

We forgot the mall from the original Dawn of the Dead movie. Plenty of regional and local stores were clearly seen. Also in the plaza in the back of the mall an A & P can also be spotted.

an episode of I Love Lucy has Lucy buying a dress from Gimbel's and Ethel buying an identical dress from Macy's

Macy's also features in A Miracle on 34th St

the campers from "Meatballs" board their busses in a K-mart parking lot

I can't believe none of you mention the movie SPLASH. When Madison (Darryl Hannah) went shopping, she went to Bloomingdales.

In the show "Homicide: Life on the Street", I noticed on an episode named "Abduction" one girl questioned for a kidnapping claimed she babysits. She said it's better than working at Caldor! This episode was originally shown in early 1998.

Also in the movie "Hard Rain", an old couple (the wife played by Golden Girl Betty White) live directly across from Sears. Their last name was even Sears.

Jackyl shot their video for "I stand alone" outside a k-mart when they refused to carry their album. Heres the video (you get a good shot of the k-mart logo at the time as well):

That video is hilarious!

I remember seeing a video online once of these kids Boycotting music at Wal-mart.  They bought a camera at a Wal-Mart in Worcester and filmed themselves sticking these anti-walmart stickers all over cd's at walmart, Target, and other stores music sections.  Then they got the video off the camera and returned it to the store!:insane:

This movie is called "Chopping Mall". It was shot inside the Sherman Oaks Galleria (which I hear is now an open air plaza). You can see many many stores in here including: McDonalds, May Co., Crabtree & Evelyn, Thom Mcan, Toys'R'us  among others.

Apparently this mall was also used in many other films including "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"

Saw parts of this really bizzare movie recently called Adam Sandler's 8 Crazy Nites. It was an animated movie and the mall used the names of real stores.
