Is it illegal to profit form merchandise purchased from a business you work for?

I bought a couple of suits off the clearance rack a few months ago that I realize I never cared for. Is it illegal to resell them for a higher price if I bought them from a retailer I work for? I got an associate discount on them and everything. I know that legally it belongs to you when you purchase it, but I wonder if I can figure out if it is against company policy without actually asking any of my supervisors, lest I , you know, tip them off.

It is very, very unlikely that any procedure would ever be in place that would jeopardize your job. Remember one thing that is true...Your business still made a profit even if they gave you a discount. You should not feel bad about selling the suits for a profit. BusinessHotline
