Yes, this is an apples & oranges question.

You must make sure you are comparing the same thing.

The keyword is UNLIKE here.

We are comparing:
1) Customers in brick and mortar furniture stores
2) customers in online furniture stores.

We are NOT comparing

1) Customers in brick and mortar furniture stores
2) online furniture stores

In order to make this distinction, we need to use the word "THOSE" as shown in the correct answer.

Between D and B; the " ; " implies a new clause after the first clause and requires a subject and hence D

First of all, while concision is technically a tested area on the GMAT, it rarely is used and should only be employed when all grammar and meaning issues have been exhausted.

From a grammar standpoint, we can only use a semicolon if we are connecting two independent clauses but option b doesn't have an independent clause following the semicolon. That will leave us to option d.

From a meaning standpoint, the phrase 'as well' does add some meaningful emphasis to the fact that in some cases people buy extra items, so we would not view that phrase as redundant/unnecessary.
