Reading shop=discount first the kind of shop sprang to my mind that sell
all kinds of stuff in the range of 1-5€. Here they often have names like
1€ Store, 99c Store etc.
Looking at usages on Overpass Turbo indeed many of the occurrences are
that kind of stores (shop=variety?). But there are also a lot of
supermarkets (Aldi etc) with this tag, as well as drug stores and
hardware stores it seems (I had to guess from the name where I did not
To me its obvious that the tag in its current usage is totally unusable
as it does not denote at all what I can expect to buy in the store.
Rather there could be a tag as discount=yes showing it's some kind of
discount store along the special shop=* tag.
So I'm perfectly fine with discouraging the use on the wiki page but I
would not simply call it a duplicate of shop=variety but refer to likely
tags as shop=supermarket/convenience/variety.
