We use these businesses on long distance stop overs when traveling. Although we haven't needed a generator overnight (-one, we don't have one; -two, we c/g hookup in the heat for the night otherwise LOL), we have stayed in a Costco, WM, etc parking lot overnight.
Make sure you check with the manager of the store before parking (even when going to a Wm that Online listings say it's ok
). More than likely, if you park in the 'north forty' that the manager points you to, your generator won't bother anyone.... as long as it isn't one of those clonky ones.
Other members will definitely make suggestions on how to secure one, but if you are just overnight and not site-seeing for the day while parked there, you might be ok (?).
