comment May I shop at a church-owned thrift store?
@curiousdannii: Good question. My hunch is this: We know that shopping at the Salvation Army is definitely supporting a church, and so we avoid it. We could also investigate the religious practices of an Ebay user before doing business with them, but the common custom seems to be that we don't. Why not? I guess because, although some Ebay users might be idol-worshippers, most aren't. Side note: Despite all this, it's still meritorious to do business with Jews who keep Shabbat when practicable.

comment When a chain store advertises a “Holiday” or “End of Year” sale, may I buy their product?
+0. "a=incidental or an incentive" doesn't make sense. "t says" and "canone" are typos. "Gamarah" is an odd transliteration. And the question needs a good few minutes of additional copyediting in general. Plus, you've bundled too many questions into one post. Finally, please depersonalize your post if possible. Good questions though.

Copyediting. Dejargonifying.

@DoubleAA: The mishnah you cited doesn't apply unless it's within three days of the holiday. And, even then, it's not so clear that it applies anymore nowadays. My question was whether or not it's permissible to shop at such a sale at all, even if there's still one full week to go before the holiday itself.

comment what happens to non-Noahide non-Jews after death?
You might get more upvotes if you would copyedit your answer. (Spelling, grammar, dejargonification, paragraphing, et cetera.) Still, I myself have upvoted your answer, since it was at a mere +1 until I arrived.
