Also, in Michigan, many people say 'Kmart's' or 'Walmart's'. But this seems
to be somewhat different since the person who owns the business isn't named
Kmart or Walmart (cf. Kroger).
But it is like "Eagle's." Maybe this is everywhere, since a major
dialect boundary separates Michigan and central Ill.
