Whithout knowing what the discoloration was caused by or what it looks like I will tell you that Wood Elixir will improve it at minimum. If it truly is an 'end table' then the finish is not shellac but lacquer. Since the wood is maple, I know that the color is in the finsh and not in the wood, which means that you cannot touch up the chips with stain, you must use dye markers. The proper materials are only available to furniture dealers but you can replicate a good result which a brown magic marker that matches your finish color. Treat with Wood Elixir to seal and protect. Wood Elixir will reduce scratches provided that they have not gone through the finish. Wipe on and wipe off and buff. Repeat to increase sheen.
