A better use would be the word retail which covers the selling of goods to the 
public (as in the logistics chain from Manufacturer to Distributor to 
Wholesaler to Retailer to consumer)

actually sales is the plural of the noun "sale". Why would you use the plural 
in this context? Especially as it typically means "a period during which a shop 
or dealer sells goods at reduced prices."

I agree that the word "sells" is better  for use as a tag, a verb is ok for a 
property, a plural noun less so, and even less as it's highly ambiguous in this
