    Are these sentences natural? August 3

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. Whatever may they do, ultimately it is us, customers, who decide which one of them is the best.

    2. Store A is quite a ways away from here, while Store B is just a little bit ways away from here.

    3. It has been half an hour into the movie, but you are welcome to watch the rest.

    Thanks,
    MG.

    No, not to my native ear.
