Context and Question:

My friend and I walked by a bookstore and we saw there were many people. Then we observed that people came here to buy books because the bookstore has been opened for one year. (A year ago, the bookstore opened). But he’s from Africa and he asked me what was happening and I said:

Today is the 1st anniversary of our bookstore. Anyone can have a 95% discount if purchase.

I wonder if the underlined phrase makes sense.


I don’t think so. Since I used more than three sentences to explain to him what was happening. And I really want a word or phrase to replace it. J

Thanks a lot

    I agree with Parla.

    To maybe shorten it up: It's the bookstore's first anniversary. There's a 95% (!!!) discount on any purchases.
