''Sell well'' + "very" or "pretty"

< Previous | Next >
Hello everyone,


I'd like to know if the use of "sell well" is idiomatic/common with "pretty" or "very". If not, what do you suggest? Please take a look.


a. Why weren't there any Coca Colas in the store? I think it's because they sell very well.
b. Go there and buy some chocolate before everybody buys all of them. They sell pretty well.


Meaning intended: very many people buy


Thank you in advance!

    "Pretty" is more reserved than "very" is. Something that "sells pretty well" wouldn't be as successful as something that "sells very well" in my idiolect.
