|Tools for this tag|
A grocery is a retail store that specializes in selling non-perishable food.
This tag is intended to be used for a traditional grocery shop. Typically these are more specialized than a supermarket or convenience store. There are few specialist grocery shops. Because they are specialists they will often be found on the high street, alongside other specialist shops.
Supermarkets and convenience stores are sometimes described as grocery businesses. However shop=grocery tag is not intended for these. Use shop=supermarket or shop=convenience instead. Both supermarkets and convenience stores stock a broad range of goods outside the "non-perishable food" category. They will normally have longer opening hours.
