    We know that these days a lot of people, like Sheila, like to buy new technology online. However, other people, like Charles, prefer to buy it in a mall.

    See above.

    You can say "Some people, like Sheila ..." or "Some people, such as Sheila ...". We don't say "Some people, as Sheila ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
