Ir de compras

Heading: 'Ir de compras' Vs 'Ir a la compra'

Are the following translations correct:
• ir de compras to go shopping (clothes, presents, CDs, etc.)
• hacer la compra to go shopping (food)
• hacer las compras to go shopping (food)
• ir a la compra to go shopping (everything – e.g. food and presents)

I don't know "ir a la compra" or "hacer la compra"; these might be regional expressions.

"Ir de compras" and "hacer las compras" both mean what you understood for me.
