Is it permissible to ask bookstores about other book events in their area such as book fairs, festivals, etc., or do they consider this competition?

Q:Is it permissible to ask bookstores about other book events in their area such as book fairs, festivals, etc., or are they unlikely to respond because they consider this competition?
