French term or phrase: clubs d'adhérents à prix discount
A contract granting a licence to manufacture and sell a particular brand of goods. The contract places the following limitation on the outlets to whom the licensee may distribute the goods:

Le Licencié ne vendra pas las Marchandises sous Licence notamment aux revendeurs suivants:
- magasins d'usine
- clubs d'adhérents à prix discount

Is this simply 'discount stores'?

Thanks

Thanks. Having weight up the two options suggested, I wanted to keep the word 'discount' as this is specifically mentioned in the source so went with the first option. Although I do appreciate the slight difference. Thanks for all the comments given.

agree  Noni Gilbert: Presumably including holders of loyalty cards are covered by this, as in "Do you have a Club Card at all..."!

agree  Sylvia Smith: "Discount shopping clubs" – "membership" is not really needed with "clubs" / I see – my mistake, sorry!

  -> correct. I intended "membership discount retailers" or "shopping clubs"

agree  Tony M: I think it is more specifically 'shopping clubs', I don't think they're referring to so-called 'cash & carry' outlets that require membership. / Quite! In UK, lots of 'cash & carry' are 'almost retail', using membership to get round regs.

  -> agree. shopping clubs (such as Price Club in the US) do require membership but are not exclusive to trade business like Metro (cash and carry), for example, which is more wholesale than discount

agree  xxxcmwilliams: but I don't agree with aceavila's comment - loyalty cards are completely different.
