Yep .. needs to be 'generic' - usefull for all shop types.

There was a few blocks of a street in Athens, Greece that had a line of shops all selling this stuff (bathroom fittings, baths, tap ware, sinks etc).
Would make shopping so easy! Side by side shops .. different brands and stock in each.

Some 'shops' also do repair, servicing of the things they sell. Bicycles has already been equipped with tags for that,
and I'd think the sub tags should allow for it too...

For example


or even

sells:hobby:train:hornby=yes .. where the make is known.
