Shoppers in sporting goods stores, unlike in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, not buying a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but they leave with a basketball only.

[B] those in department stores, do very little impulse shopping; someone who comes in for a basketball will leave with a basketball only and not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang as well.
[C] department stores, shop impulsively very little; someone will not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball but will leave with only a basketball.
[D] those in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, do not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but leave with only a basketball.
[E] in department stores, shop impulsively very little; someone who comes in for a basketball will leave with a basketball only and not also buy a pair of skis and a boomerang as well.

You can rewrite (D) as follow

Shoppers in sporting goods stores, unlike those in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, do not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but leave with only a basketball.

The RED part is the main sentence.
The GREEN part is an parenthetical element
The Italic part is an run-on because it does not follow the grammar structure. There is no subject. The use of semi-colon is necessary here to seperate two independent clauses.

I thinks D is erroneous, because there is no conj. between two do actions.

(E) is wrong, because also and as well are redundant.

(C) compare shoppers with departmant stores

(A) they is ambiguous.
