Can I use the possessive word "of" many times in a sentence as follow:
"I bought a lot ot cakes of stores of that hall"
Is it natural to use like that or how can I rewrite?
It is possible to use 'of' several times:
News of the assassination of the President of the People's Republic of Gardenia has caused concern in neigbouring states.

And 'hall' is possible but unusual, rather than 'place/shopping centre/mall...'. Some posh shops - and shops with pretensions to poshness - have a place called a 'food hall' - but a 'food hall' doesn't contain 'stores'. Perhaps the OP is being misled by the French halles - which means something like 'covered market'; and that, too, doesn't contain 'stores'. A covered market is made up of 'stalls'.
But whether they're stalls or shops they're not stores!
(And don't get me started on French magasins, which don't sell magazines, unless... )
