Is It Legal to Buy and Resell Items?

I have a home-based clothing store. I'm wondering whether it's legal for me to buy items on sale in retail chain stores and resell them through my business. I know I could sell the items on eBay as an individual, but I'm wondering whether the laws are different somehow when I'm running a business.
