Modern ones are floating - almost no part of the freezers or coolers are built into the floor. They replace them or re-arrange them as needed. A lot of older locations are bing remodeled to use the newer, more efficient units lately. The industrial ones in the back are quite small, (and not part of the structure)  and their power sub-panel need  is about the same current draw as a standard factory. The deli or other labor based section (people who make box lunch, prepare fresh food, or an onsite bakery) would have more of a architectural burden than the freezers -  but externally they look the same, and they could be a drug store or a clothing store or a halloween store - i have seen a supermarket turned into all of those.
