If I understand you correctly your mapping/tagging so the name is 
displayed along the outline of the shop.

unknown boundaries also do this.
I believe this is considered an error in Mapnik which is known about. I 
think(?) a fix is being work on. I'm sure a mapnik programmer could give 
more accurate info.

Personally I don't like the way the name wraps around corners making it 
almost impossible to read. That's why I don't map for the render & try & 
wait patiently for them to catch up
