Many facilities may only be available to those who join a membership scheme. Alternatively non-members may use the facilities, but may have more restricted rights. Typical examples are:

  • Membership Stores: most typically, so called [W] Warehouse Clubs, such as [W] CostCo, [W] Sam's Club, which are common in the USA. Some cash and carry stores in Europe also work with membership schemes: e.g., [W] Makro or [W] Sligro. Recently [W] EasyDay have announced ambitions plans to open 10,000 small (2,500 skus, 2-3000 sq ft) membership supermarkets in India by 2022.
  • Fitness facilities. Often referred to as "gyms" or health clubs in english-speaking countries. Examples include: [W] David LLoyd Leisure. The tag may be appropriate to separate leisure=fitness facilities which are only available to members.
  • Social Clubs. Social clubs which may act as pubs may require membership, although this may be in the form of temporary membership.
  • Sports Clubs. Most regular sports clubs are membership organisations, and in general the tag is not needed.
