Shop assistants// SELL shoes over a SALES counter.

They do not "sales shoes over a a sales counter".

It is English .. and has peculiarities.

For the OSM tagging .. use sells not sales, sells makes 'English' sense in that context.

Why don't they call it a sale counter, then ?

"sells" is a verb (the action of doing something),

actually sales is the plural of the noun "sale". Why would you use the plural in this context? Especially as it typically means "a period during which a shop or dealer sells goods at reduced prices."

I agree that the word "sells" is better  for use as a tag, a verb is ok for a property, a plural noun less so, and even less as it's highly ambiguous in this case.
