Hi guys, I am building a smartphone website and building a shop/store for it but I am confusing which word should I add to the URL? "shop" or "store"?
i.e example.com/shop/ or example.com/store/
it will be a page to sell smartphones, accessories, tablets, laptops.
Please advise me.

According to C.J. Brickell the word «store» is of larger signification than the word shop. «Shop» is likely to stems from «shed» and «store» has a general sense of «sufficient supply». I'm comparing «a barbershop» and «a barber store» and feel meaning «service» in «shop» and «goods» in the word «store». British English prefers «shop» and American English sticks with «store», correct me if I'm wrong. In the end the final word is yours!

In my opinion, go for the subdomain, like shop.example.com. Use symbolic linking if necessary.
