Surely this is shop=convenience - for what Americans (and increasingly Brits
too!) call a convenience store. From what I recall of trips to NL this is
what Blokker etc. is - but perhaps I have misunderstood?

Subject: [OSM-talk] Tagging for general household shop

Hi all,

In NL, we have a breed of shops, represented by a small number of chains
(Blokker, Marskramer, may be one or two more) that 'specialise'  
in all kinds of general household necessities, ranging from bin liners to
ironing boards and from cutlery to adhesive tape and even small household
appliances. It is definitely not a department store - it's much smaller and
does not have distinguishable departments. It is also not a specialty store
- they focus on affordable, main stream household products.

Going by this description, is there a tag that you think covers this?  
Otherwise I will introduce shop=household.

Take care,
