Why cancel the transaction?
The small business that I work for openly invites competitors into our facility and we get invited into theirs. We openly have their catalogs and I'm sure they get ours too. We all sell the same products manufactured by the same sources. The sources sometimes sell the products as well.
The profit comes from top notch customer service and other perks that our competitors choose not to do. We all have our little niche in the industry. Some of our competitors are actually our best customers and sometimes, we have to partner with them. We're all looking at the bottom line, but I love the genuine respect and knowledge that is shared too.
