a shop is “A place selling retail products or services.”
note the word retail (aiming at end users)

an office is “A place of business, similar to shops” (great ;-) )
and also: “An office is a place of business where administrative or professional work is carried out. “
and also “See the page titled Office for an introduction on its usage.” (IMHO bad, we should not split tag definitions over several pages. UPDATE: is self referential, ie links back to itself currently, please someone fix it by removing it, it’s on a template I don’t want to mess with it on the phone).

Cheers Martin
