Post Fair business practice?

I am looking into other business ventures and ran across one I was interested in. I dont want to say exactly what.

When reviewing the distributors website, there are 13 retailers in the South Florida area alone. When researching the Atlanta area, there is only one retailer with 2 Atlanta stores and one in Athens which is 1-2 hours from Atlanta. After I expanded my search, I found another one in Savannah which is 3-5 hours away, completely different territory. And those seem to be the only ones in the state.

So one would think there is plenty of room for another business in Atlanta. It is not that unique of a product.

I call a distributor up and he basically tells me he wont open an account for me. The other store does alot of business with them and he wouldnt want to upset them. There are other distributors but thise is the large one and they also have alot of their own manufactured products which would be needed

Is this legal?


I have thought about ways around it like contacting the manufacturers and telling them XYZ wont sell to me.
