You could solve this by adding operator= or name= to the 
amenity=parking. Then, you would just navigate to the parking lot that 
is called 'big box store'.

For foot and bicycle navigation, I'd define a POI for the main door 
building=entrance. This won't work perfectly when you are navigating to 
a store inside a shopping mall or when there are multiple entrances, but 
it is good enough.
