I would also add the tag:
for the stores for which exists a photo in the Volg Commons category:

On this particular photo I can see that there is a bicycle parking rack 
for 5+ bicycles near the shop, the car parking, the post box, and the 
supermarket trolleys. It could be a useful information for a traveler 
planning a trip to this town.
The HD image also could be handy for a mapper who is mapping say the 
post boxes or bicycle parking racks, as it possible to see its exact 
location and its capacity.

I remember I've made an aerial image for the Colovray Sport Center 
Wikipedia article in the canton of Vaud: 
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centre_sportif_de_Colovray and I added the 
link to this image on the OSM map: 

Then couple of years later I had to go to this sport center for the 
Escalade race public training. And I already forgot if there was a 
parking there. I looked on the map, saw that there is the parking 
nearby, and also saw this parking and its entrances on the photo. So the 
image was helpful even for me who had been there earlier and who made it.

Best regards,
