This feature has been labeled as deprecated
. The recommended replacement is: more specific value, see description.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features
. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct
. Any such change will be reverted.
Unclear tag value. May be something that should be tagged rather as shop=medical_supply or amenity=pharmacy or shop=herbalist or shop=health_food.
