Summary

A newsagent is a shop primarily selling newspapers, and magazines.

They normally sell a wide range of other convenience items e.g. cigarettes, pens, paper material such as copybooks, sometimes sweets, chocolates and even sandwiches, milk etc.

Use shop=kiosk for a similar shop in a little freestanding kiosk box, e.g. located in the middle of a square, or possibly for a very small box shop as part of a bigger building. A newsagent is a proper shop, so slightly bigger building or integrated into a bigger building.

Use shop=convenience for more general store type shops (may sell newspapers and magazines). A newsagent primarily sells newspapers and magazines.

Reasoning

shop=kiosk is is the closest tag we have at the moment, but a normal newsagent shop appearing in a row of shops cannot accurately be called a kiosk.

How to map

Use a node or area and tag it with shop=newsagent

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. This makes only sense if it replaces kiosk. Small objects are nodes, big objects are areas. Inventing different tags for objects that only differ in size causes confusion. --Lulu-Ann 11:29, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

  • I oppose this proposal I oppose this proposal. It only makes sense if it's applied to all newsagents, irrespective of the physical size of the shop. It would probably better to move the 'kiosk' value from 'shop' to 'building', and then use this as an additional tag when appropriate. --Kaitu 20:18, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

  • I approve this proposal I approve this proposal. 'kiosk' is a building_type whilst 'newsagent' is refering to the kind of goods a merchant sells, so I think this proposal is right whilst 'kiosk' should probably be modified -- Dieterdreist 23:53, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
