  • (b) Many people are at the sale.OK

    (c) Many people buy things in the shopping

  • ...because there are sales today / ...because there's a big sale today.
    _______

    "Sale" is a count noun, so we say "a sale" or "the sale" for the singular, and "sales" or "the sales" for the plural.

    There are also idioms with the word "sale" that do not have an article; for example, we say that something at a lower price is "on sale." When a seller wants someone to buy his/her product, the product is "for sale."

    "...because of the sales."

    (b) They like to buy clothes when the sales are 50 percent OFF.

    (c) They bought many things from the sales.

    (d) They like sales.

    (e) They go to the sales.

    (f) The people came to the place for sales.OK

    (g) The market has many people because there are having sales. "...because THEY are having sales," or "...because there are sales."

    (h) There are many people because it has sales.
    Possible, but we have to know what "it" is from context.


    In the sentences above, I have either rewritten an imperfect part of your sentences, or rewritten the sentence correctly with omitted words.

    quote:
    (a) The sales period is coming this month.
    (b) Sales is coming soon.

    how do correct it?

    a)The sales are coming this month.

    OR (maybe in a business)

    The sales period is coming this month.

    (b) The sales are coming soon.

    R
    can i say
    (a) There are many people because the shopping centre is having
    end-yaer sales.
    (b) There are many people at that shop during the sales.
    Yes!

    Well, almost. Sentence (a) is:

    There are many people because the shopping centre is having year-end sales.

    Sentence (b) would most likely be:....during the sale (no S).

    Can I say,

    (a) Alice went to the shoe shop because it was / there was a big sale (up to 50 percent)

    (b) There was a special discount of shoes / a special discount for / on shoes.

    (c) Last week, the shoes shop had a discount / a special discount / a sale / an annual sale.

    (d) The shoe shop organized / held sales / big sales of shoes.
    (a)Alice went to the shoe shop because there was a big sale, up to 50 percent off.

    In BrE they refer to this establishment as a shoe shop. In AmE it's called a shoe store.
    The reason for saying off is that it's part of an ellipted phrase: 50% off the normal price.

    (b)There was a special discount on shoes.

    (c)These are okay.

    (d)The shoe shop held (big) sales.
    Can I say,

    (1) There are many books on sale. We can get discounts from 10 % to 50 %.

    (2) There are many books on sale from 10% to 50 % discounts.
    quote:
    (1) There are many books on sale. We can get discounts from 10 % to 50 %.

    (2) There are many books on sale from 10% to 50 % discounts.


    1: OK
    2: change to: with 10% to 50% discounts
