Apparently #OSMAnd differentiates between Walmart and Walmart Supercenter, and when you search for Walmart it doesn't include Supercenters.

A tad bit confusing and frustrating, luckily I already knew where Walmart was and was just playing around.

@lesbianhacker There's a project to "canonicalise" brand names in for cases like that. I don't think uses it, and it might just be for editing. ( github.com/osmlab/name-suggest
osmlab.github.io/name-suggesti ).

I suspect it's just doing a string search on the `name` tag. I'm surprised it's not picking up a partial match... 🤔

If you want, you could try to file an issue with the app? ( github.com/osmandapp/Osmand/is )
