A Wikipedia-16px.png general store. Selling various things.

This tag is a little unclear, partly because of the massive overlap with shop=supermarket and shop=convenience described below, and partly because of the two different usages of the term in the UK and US:

UK

In the UK a "general stores" is grocery+other stuff - so basic foodstuffs, some ironmongery (=DIY), some stationery, and so on. It's an old-fashioned UK shop that is sadly dying out in the age of the supermarket.

US,Australia

Traditionally a "general store" is the main (and often only) store in a small town or village, usually selling things like tools, building supplies, clothes, food, and similar items. Usually they only carry a small selection of the most frequently demanded products.

A contemporary "general merchandiser" is typically larger and carries a similar selection of general merchandise, usually excluding food items. When divided into departments, may be considered a "department store" (e.g. Sears), although most contemporary department stores do not carry tools or building supplies.

How to map

Set a node Node or draw as an area Area along the building outline. Add the tag shop=general and name=*.
