the access=customer is actually meant to be about potential customers in some context. I guess you are only a real customer if you buy something, but until you buy something or leave you are still a potential customer, which for the purpose of access to a shop or the parking of a retail area is just as good. 
The same customers tag for a toilet in a restaurant or for example beach resort or camp site has slightly different meaning, you already should be a (real) customer of the place in order to be admitted (or count on their courtesy).
