This approach could be used for supermarkets/convenience stores as
well. Supermarkets might sell different items in different countries,
or depending on their size or type (discounter vs. "regular').

There could be an extra tag on the section to indicate whether there
is personnel to assist you or where the personnel has to take/pack the
items for you. Some DYI offer a paint mixing service or a wood cutting
service. Supermarkets can have a butcher or people serving bread,
deli, etc.
