Yea. I tagged the local shopping centre here as a mall, because it has mall in the title ><. But I will be changing that.

Me too, until realizing we have both these these tags. I love landuse=＊so much.

Yea - the mall seems more like retail=* sub tag stuff,if one exists.

They appear to be similar as they both have several independent shops and collective facilities like toilets and parking. Maybe a mall has to have restaurants and other eating facilities, while a shopping center doesn't have to (but could have). I think small sets of shops with collective parking won't qualify as "mall" but they might constitute a shopping center.
