Hello. I work for an online pet retail LLC. I've been their operations assistant for about half a year, and it's my first time working as a middle man in the pet industry, when I've been a manager of brick and mortar pet stores. I'm interested in the possibilities in being a representative, and I wondered if an online retailer like ours, working between manufacturers and customers, could also become a representative for retail stores. Could the same company create a branch where a rep goes into pet retail stores to help them place orders through our same manufacturers? Would this constitute conflicting interests?

I hope my question makes senses. Can a small business whose business is between manufacturers and customers, acquire a branch that works between manufacturers and retailers?

Thanks for your help!
