Iʻm a bit confused: ka lole, clothes, like in the sentence "My mother buys clothes" required the article "ka" to specify that she is buying clothes in general not any specific clothes, yes? But earlier: "Buy supplies" supplies was "nā lako", not "ka lako". Why was the plural article required here?

need to make the the distinction between kūʻai mai (buy) versus kūʻai aku (sell)
