doubtlessly. Is it similar to a “shop”? Do they “sell a service”? It will depend on the kind of agency (e.g. in Germany, you won’t have to pay for the services that the government run employment agency provide).

sure, but is it the main purpose of a newspaper office? Do you pay for the service provided at the office, or do you pay for the advertisement actually being printed and distributed (i.e. something not done in the office)? Compare it to an advocate or travel agent.

IMHO, this list is a lot of apples and pears, and the title (definition) is not a good fit.
