Don't forget to use the Translation option on the site.

First of all, it should be "which stores" rather than "what stores." However, it will work out the same in Spanish. But if you use another word besides "qué" it will sound incorrect.

You could say, "Mis amigos y yo decidamos qué tiendas a en comprar."

I am a bit unsure about the "a en" part, but most people would probably understand. A better way to ask this question would be "My friends and I decided the stores in which to shop," or "... in which we would(or will, if you haven't shopped yet, but have decided) shop." This would be "Mis amigos y yo decidamos las tiendas en cuál comprar."

Be careful using "what" and "which." "What" can be said as "qué," and "which" is most commonly said as "qué;" so in this case it wouldn't have made a difference. But many people use these translations for "which."

I would probably say: Mis amigos y yo nos decidimos por dónde ir de compras. Again, I'm not a native. I would like to know the answer, actually.

Mis amigos y yo decidimos en cuales tiendas para hacer compras.

This sounds awkward, but it's a starting point for someone to correct.
