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

I’m trying to tag business places where the main activity is to sell goods to other businesses, usually not to individual consumers. The tag shop=wholesale could be used but I’m not sure it is adequate when I look at the wiki page.

For instance:
1- I want to tag a business that sell/deliver milk to groceries. Should I tag it shop=wholesale and wholesale=dairy?

2- What if they also sell goods/services to individual customers? Should I simply tag it shop=dairy?

Thanks in advance :-)

The usual tag is shop=trade, but this in itself doesn't explain what it sells. The relevant wiki page explains how this is used and may answer your other queries.

I haven’t looked at that one which seems to do the job as long as I add other relevant tags. Thanks
