Swim to the side Eric! Swim!
When Eric leaves Sears with his mother behind him, the door handles on the store across the street clearly say Sears. The sequence was shot at the Costa Mesa CA store, with a separate merchandise pickup building across the street from the main store.
SPOILER: The original Japanese VHS release of features an earlier cut of the film, with an alternative ending. When Eric wheels after the aliens heading back into the shopping mall, a police officer tries to grab him and falls over. This causes his gun to discharge a bullet, striking Eric through the chest and killing him instantly. This explains why Eric is suddenly motionless when the building explodes. In all other versions, it's implied he died from the explosion. There are also some other minor color tinting and editing differences.
