, AND [subject] ALSO [verb]


“And also” sounds redundant and should be avoided.  "And" is a conjunction, while "also" is an adverb.  This non-grammatical expression is often used to join items that are not closely related; for instance, "Our store sells fruit and also furniture."  Only a conjunction can form a compound object.  An adverb must refer to a verb.  It is much better to say "Our store sells food, and it also sells furniture."  It may take a bit longer, but it sounds much better.
