French term or phrase: commerce de tournées
I don't have a good context. It just appears in a list under the heading "commerces." Also listed is "commerces multi-services."

Explanation:
Petits commerces de proximité, surtout pour les villages et les personnes âgées. A l'ère de la grande surface (bien plus grande qu'au Royaume Uni), les petits commerces renaissent sous la forme de fourgonnnettes itinérantes qui vendent de tout et prennent même des commandes personnalisées.
