What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? Florida

I am a seller on eBay and one of my regular vendors (a factory outlet store) has told the manager of the store they are no longer to sell to me or any body else who is known to re-sell their products.

I don't understand how they can do this. I pay the exact same price as anybody else who walks in off the street and purchases from them.

When I re-sell - I include a disclaimer that I do not work for or represent that company in any way but I purchase from an autherized agent.

If I am not receiving any special consideration from this retail store, do not return merchandise, never refuse a charge, can they refuse to sell to me?

The company refusing my business is a major, publicly traded company and they have told their employees (the ones that were not fired for selling to me) that this is to remain confidential but they will be fired if they sell to me.

By the way, I have given them $250,000 in business in 7 months.

The amount of business you have given them in the past 7 months has nothing to do with the fact that they are not required by law to sell to you.

Would it be possible to locate another vendor in the area or on the internet? Sounds like a self-interest driven business decision. But then again, what isn't.
