    pay for running a store

    Prices in such shops (offline shops) are lower, because sellers do not have to pay for running a store.

    Does the bold part sound natural?

    Re: pay for running a store

    Offline shops? Are you trying to say that real world "brick and mortar" stores have lower costs than online stores?

    Re: pay for running a store

    You probably didn't get it. I wrote "offline shops" to show you what "such kinds of shops" referred to.

    Re: pay for running a store

    I have no idea what you are trying to say. What is an "offline shop?" I take it to mean the opposite of internet commerce. What do you mean?

    You got it right, it's the opposite to online shops. (e-commerce)

    Re: pay for running a store

    Your contention is that if you go into an actual, real life, brick-and-mortar store to buy, say shoes or dish soap that the prices there will be cheaper than going to Amazon.com or some other online, internet retailer?

    Oh dear! I'm so sorry! It's completely vice versa. I mean online shops.

    Re: pay for running a store

    That makes more sense.

    I would say they don't have the costs associated with running a traditional "brick-and-mortar" business.

    What about formal writing? I do not think it's appoprtiate in writing, isn't it?

    What, "brick-and-mortar"? It's pretty well-established as a concept.
