Well, literally spoken, a building cannot sell anything. So it must be 
the person who sells it. I don't know how this word was created, but I 
think of it as what one would say in english "I go to the butcher" or "I 
go to the barber's" - you think of the building, but you mention the 
person. How is that in Greek?
