A shop selling  stationery - paper, notebooks, festive cards, envelopes, pens, pencils and other related supplied for home, school and office use.

Office supply shops may also sell furniture or electronics, but if it is primarily stationery use this tag.

An example of these in the USA would be Office Depot, Staples, and Office Max.

How to map

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