A printing shop would make large format poster prints, or other large scale “promotional” materials - usually more professional or B2B purposes than a copyshop. When you get brochures professionally printed on a press and perforated and trimmed - it is usually in a warehouse with a 1M wide guillotine trimmer - but you walk in with a CD and get your 20 boxes brochures printed.

It also might cover art reproduction printing shops. My friend runs a business that only prints large format paper and canvas prints for artists to sell. It is totally not a copy shop.
