FCBD is about comic book stores because they're the ones who need comics to sell. Putting FCBD in a grocery store is not going to get people to go back to buying comic books there because the people who would have bought them there don't want to buy comic books in the first place.
I never recall comics being in a lot of supermarkets growing up. They were always in the smaller convenience stores and drug stores (the ones that were more likely to be locally owned than corporate). At least around here. But that was then.
The modern marketplace is more centered around the supernmarkets and Walmarts than it is the mom n' pop stores. It's where comics need to start making better serious efforts to get into, along with a bigger presence in book stores.
