Have you tried searching OSM data by name using Taginfo?

I wouldn't worry about that - that'll just waste everyone's time. If
some on-the-ground infrastructure is missing from the map, just map it.
It's perfectly possible to search by name or operator later if a
consensus emerges about tagging.

Probably not. We don't tend to tag "everything a shop might sell".
There are exceptions (food, drinks), and if you want to map the
availability of a particular service then you are free to do so - just
don't expect everyone else to do it too.
