I have a store that I sell honey to. They buy and resell goods that are produced locally. Milk, baked goods, gifts and of course honey. There is another store that I sell honey to. It is more of a gift shop that sells some food items. Chocolates and some locally produced food items, but mostly gifts.
The first store is upset with me because they were under the impression that I was only going to sell to them and feel that I should not be selling to their competition. The 2 stores are in 2 different towns and 6 miles from each other.
Am I breaking some sort of unwritten code here? Or am I right to tell them that I can not promise I won't be selling to other retailers.
All opinions welcome please.
