I think having real stores, restaurants and products lends to the reality of the world they're portraying.
There should be no realism argument since this movie is about an alien that looks like a human that is flying around. It's not trying to be realistic in the first place.
But you want to ground it in as much reality as possible. Using known stores, restaurants and products helps to do that.

You want the world to be recognizable.
