I know I have used office_supply for Staples. When I looked it up in the
wiki, the stationery page did not include the examples of the office
superstores and my impression was that it was intended for smaller shops,
including the Hallmark shops that John mentions. I considered Staples to be
different enough to deserve a different tag. I am not convinced that I am
right... just stating at how I arrived at my tagging decision.
