- Use shop=kiosk for kiosks, i.e. small structures on the pavement selling magazines, tobacco, newspapers, sweets and stamps.
- Use shop=newsagent for shops that sell newspapers and magazines, and sometimes convenience items.
- Use shop=e-cigarette for shops that sell only electronic cigarettes.
The keys tobacco=yes (used more often but the meaning is not documented or inherent) or sells:tobacco=yes (used rarely but has clear semantics) can be added to places that sell tobacco, but are not considered tobacco shops because they fall into a different typology and the sale of tobacco is not their main activity (e.g. a kiosk, a bar, a grocery store, a restaurant, ...).
