Shops sell physical objects e.g. bread, vegetables, paper.

These .. people .. don't sell physical objects .. so they are not a 
shop. There are, at best, an office.

office=charlatan would cover far too many 'services' e.g. politicians, 
financial advisors, etc...
I think the term 'fortune_teller' would also fail to be specific 
enough.. possibly a sub tag is needed?
fortune_teller=financial/general/love ?
