so make a guess what "Robben & Wientjes" (biggest in Berlin of it's kind) rent?

a common type of shop like renting? Actually they all have the renting
part in common, but it is really of no interest. We could also have
shop=retail
retail:food=yes/no
retail:scissors=yes/no
retail:bread=yes/no
retail:ice_cream=yes
retail:games=yes
retail:cars=yes
retail:foo=yes

but we don't do it like this.

cheers,
Martin
