PT: Uma tenda = A tent.
ES: Una tienda = A store.
Tienda can also mean tent in Spanish!
Maybe there was a time when people sold goods from tents that they had set up.
Tenderete is a stall so you can see the connection, in Europe we still sell goods from tents.
Tienda is a shop or a tent.
Almacen is the store at the back of a shop.
In Italian it's worse:
IT tenda = tent, curtain
So every time I see "tienda" I think curtain, not shop
It's both! https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/tienda
It means a shop in UK english.
Ahhh thank you. I thought it meant like a shed or something!

Una tienda translates better in English English as ‘a shop’. A ‘store’ is American.
why is a store sometimes tienda or local.
Maybe it's a shortened version of "tienda local".
tienda means "tent" too. I am camping a lot so I know. This needs fixing as duolingo do not recognize this word.
