Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Do we have an accepted tag for purchasing style in a shop?

Businesses like shop=trade and shop=catalogue often have very little if any stock in the customer area and are typically served either by staff over the counter or by ordering at the counter and going to a service entrance for pickup. Supermarkets and the like are typically the opposite where only restricted goods are served in this way.

Some like shop=warehouse can allow patrons to browse or require them to order at the counter depending on the operator. For some shops, like shop=hardware, there may be a general trend for older shops to be over the counter, while newer ones tend to be "browsable". Others like convenience stores at petrol stations may be browsable for a portion of the day but only served through a window at night.

Do we have a way of tagging this distinction in OSM?

It seems common enough that I feel like I must be missing the right keyword.
