It was a warm, sunny Saturday afternoon with kids playing on John Garland Blvd. and neighbours wandering home from the local plaza with groceries when gunfire suddenly rang out, leaving one man dead, three other men injured and a community shaken with grief and despair.

1. local plaza 后面跟着groceries,是不是用来说明"plaza"是购物中心的意思呢?

2.plaza, mall, supermarket这三者有什么不同?

but of course...

PLAZA means a public place or a huge open urban area...usually a nice open public place for people to hang out.

Pjt:

Thanks for your reply.  Plaza here is an open place for shopping because it is modified with " glocers".  Right?

And what are the differences among " plaza" , " mall", and " suppermarket" ?

Plaze: open ?

mall and supplermarket: Indoor place?

maybe...

howdy, rainbow--a PLAZA is a big place fpr ev'rybody to get together & it could be some shops there as well, but in the STATES most likely office buildings not a shopping mall, shopping center.  and your case yes some shopping to be done if neccessary!  plaza the word itself is just an open space & you're more than welcome!
