A hardware store, sometimes known as an ironmongers shop in the UK, is where you can buy screws and bolts, nails, hooks and other metal materials as well as metal tools. A hardware shop will often stock a wide range of products which can include building, electrical, plumbing supplies, garden tools, power tools, kitchenware, homeware, locks, keys, and a key-cutting. Where these types of product/service are supplied in isolation, a different tag may be more appropriate.

See Hardware store, Ferretería or Baumarkt for more information.

Examples of hardware stores: True Value (USA)

How to map

Set a node or draw as an area along the shop outline. Tag it with shop=hardware. Add name using name=* or use noname=yes to mark that shop has no name.
