In Poland we use "butik" as a clothes fashion shop, however I would also 
drop shop=boutique and shop=fashion.

And how should a typical tagger know what market segment it really is? 
What about luxury chain stores and cheap second-hand by a single person 
with shiny clothes which try too look as luxury?

For me all this is really not working.
