How many spots here are available? On the map there's 4 pushpins shown, plus 2 more. Does that simply mean 6 characters can occupy it?

Six people can go there, but it can only defend against four zombies; the supermarket's too big to defend all the entrances. At 5+ zombies, someone's getting eaten unless cards get played.

Actually, 4 zombies is enough for entry at the Supermarket. It can only be defended against 3 or less--regardless of number of characters present. Also, keep in mind that the "Hardware" card cannot be played in the Supermarket. Weapon cards are handy, though!

True, four is enough to eat one of the characters.

I thought that you could play the Hardware card in the Supermarket, but it wouldn't make any difference against 4 or more zombies.

For example, if there are two characters in the Supermarket and two zombies outside, you could use the Hardware card to keep them out.

However, if there were 4 zombies and 4 characters, Hardware doesn't do you any good.

To the best of my knowledge, this is correct. In fact, I'm fairly certain either the rules state this explicitly, or this was commented on by one of the designers.

Good catch. Yes, this is the case.
