Not sure what this is used for.
Possibly duplicate with shop=doityourself, not sure though.
I use this for shops selling coloured paper, glue, knitting supplies etc.
I use shop=variety_store instead, but some mappers split the two categories.
Likely used for public-facing offices of energy suppliers, especially
in countries where there is a free energy market so people might
actually be 'shopping' for an energy provider.

Lesser used alternative of shop=organic.
Similar to shop=craft.

I would use office=estate_agent for this as well.
Lesser used alternative of shop=hairdresser.
Lesser used alternative of shop=shoemaker.
Makes sense, I guess.

a friend they are visiting.
