Hi Donald
I tend to go with shop=catalogue, it certainly doesn't fit my idea of a
department store (that is Harrods, Debenhams, Grace Brothers....) and
it doesn't sell food.

When this or other things, such as post offices, are inside somewhere
else I map them as a node within the larger area. I do try to get them
in the roughly the right place.
