This can be used as a place holder for empty shops.

Some mappers recommend not to use this tag, because it does not really indicate a shop. Instead, it might be better to use something like note=vacant shop and/or disused:shop=yes. Please discuss on the talk page.

Note that shop=vacant requires special support among data consumers, for example displaying "other shop type" for otherwise unhandled rare shops needs to manually exclude shop=vacant. Also disused:shop=* allows to both specify generic shop (disused:shop=yes) and also specific type, for example disused:shop=supermarket.
