Gourmet Food Store Distinction Questions

Okay, as a US resident, I find the distinction between a deli and a "gourmet food store" as described being vague? US delis are essentially as described in this article as purveyors of cheese and other often culturally specific food items. Is the distinction made with the "gourmet food store" classification one of quality of the goods sold? Regionally, I am having trouble with the distinction. I have visited several European countries and find there was little difference between shops that call themselves delis between the US and Europe. Also, I am clueless as to how to enter a "gourmet food store" to begin with. Any help or clarification in this matter would be greatly appreciated. PittsburghMapper (talk) 20:30, 15 April 2018 (UTC)
