To the sentence"Sellers from Slovakia with heavy debts often give discount." Can I just say "ones from Slovakia with heavy debts often give discount." when I need to avoid repeating the word "sellers" too much in the same paragraph in my article?

To the sentence " sellers of fine wine from Slovakia often give discount."
Can I just say "sellers of ones from Slovakia" in order to avoid repeating "fine wine" as the above sentence has given the context.

Thank you very much for helping out. :):):)

No I'm afraid not. You could replace the word 'seller' with 'retailer' or 'wholesaler' if either of these will fit the context. If you are referring to the grower, then 'grower' might work. Another possibility is 'wine merchant' this would allow you not to repeat 'fine wines' too.

So

"Wine merchants/Growers from Slovakia with heavy debts often give discounts."

Hope that helps :)

If you don't want to say wine sellers from Slovakia, you could shorten it to Slovakian wine sellers. So the full sentence would be Slovakian wine sellers with heavy debts often give discounts.
