Wholesaling

Is there a way to tag a true wholesale store that only sells in bulk to other stores for resale instead of to the public? TristanA (talk) 17:36, 11 February 2017 (UTC)

Not retail no shop

According to the shop=* definition, the tag is for places selling retail goods and services. Therefor the shop=wholesale tag is in contradiction and should get a different key (or we change the shop definition to include wholesale). --Dieterdreist (talk) 16:25, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

But shop=wholesale does sell goods, albeit in larger quantities than usual. eg you can buy a single chocolate bar in a shop=supermarket but if you wanted a box of 100 chocolate bars you'd go to a shop=wholesale. (in the UK at least) --Lakedistrict (talk) 11:21, 1 March 2018 (UTC)
exactly. "shop" is about retail, "wholesale" is not retail. --Dieterdreist (talk) 00:13, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
My point was that shop=wholesale is retail and is a shop. shop=wholesale sells things. Perhaps the name wholesale is confusing for non-native speakers and cash_and_carry would be better. --Lakedistrict (talk) 22:30, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
