sale for nineteen ninety-nine


Senior Member
Hi everyone,

Here is the context:

- But thirty five dollars seems kind of steep. Got anything cheaper?
- Just this one. It's on sale for nineteen ninety-nine

(That summer, Sarah Dessen, p.43)

Is it true that the shoes were made in 1999 (old), so they are on sale?

Thanks ;)

    The first shoes were $35, and the first speaker thought that that was too expensive.
    The second speaker offers a second set of shoes, which cost $19.99.
