Status: de facto

The tag landuse=retail is used for areas that house predominantly shops and their associated infrastructure. The tag also includes restaurants, fast food places, fuel stations, and other related places that sell goods and not services. For example, a post office would have the landuse=commercial tag, because they offer a service, rather than a good. However, if the post office is in a shopping centre with 8 other shops, this tag would be used.

How to map

Map an area containing the whole of the retail area: the shops and car parks. If the area has a name, such as with a shopping centre, then add it using name=*.

Note: this tag should not be used for individual shops mapped as areas, for those use building=retail and the relevant shop=* tag instead.
