The wiki page on shops suggests shop=trade with trade=building_supplies. Alternatively shop=doityourself if it is more targeting consumers than professionals or has a broader range of products.

Thanks. I spent about a half hour searching the Wiki with no joy. I searched building-supplies rather than building_supplies. Didn't think of the underscore.
