@Tod,

You are probably correct, as far as the OED is concerned. IMO that term is
a bit old fashioned. I see most of those ship_chandler shops are in Europe
which doesn't surprise me. In the U.S. the term "marine" or "marine
supplies" is much more common. Taginfo reports shop=marine occurs 99 times
worldwide. By the way, the term chandler is a derivation of candler, a shop
that sells candles.

But I don't have a strong opinion on this. More just an observation.
