Why faire and not fais?

From the quiz - C'est les soldes, je vais faire les magasins.

Why is faire used here instead of fais?

Because le future proche (the near future tense) is formed by aller + infinitive.

Je vais faire le ménage.
Tu vas faire le ménage.
Il va faire le ménage.... and so on.

Thank you, Chris. If I've had le future proche lessons before, I've forgotten them, so I'm off to brush up!
