I saw a sentence like this

"Thank you a lot for you to open the store."

Is it grammatically correct??

There're some questions I want to ask about.

1. Is it correct to say " Thank you a lot for...", or just say " Thank you for..."

2.What's the difference between "Thank you a lot for you to open the store." and "Thank you for opening the store."

3.Which one would a native speaker use?

Thanks!!

Hello Matthew-- and welcome to English Forums.

"Thank you a lot for you to open the store." Is it grammatically correct?? -- No. 'Thank you a lot for opening the store'.

1. Is it correct to say " Thank you a lot for...", or just say " Thank you for..." -- Both are fine.

2.What's the difference between "Thank you a lot for you to open the store." and "Thank you for opening the store." -- The first one is wrong; it should read 'thank you a lot for opening the store'. Then it is a little more polite than the second one.

3.Which one would a native speaker use? -- Both (as amended by me) are common.

Hi,

"Thank you a lot for you to open the store." No, say 'Thanks a lot' or 'Thanks very much' or 'Thank you very much'.

eg Thanks a lot for opening the store'.
