Purchasing from an idol worshipper

Question:

B”H
Kavod haRav,
Regarding clarification of purchasing from a specific vendor who is not Jewish- may I purchase from a vendor who makes references to non-Jewish concepts, such as using the term “g-d…ess”…would this person’s merchandise become forbidden to the Jew because of these references, or it’s ok for the Jew to buy here? Thanks

Answer:

It is permitted to purchase items from a vendor even if he is an idol worshipper, as long as he isn’t selling the items for the benefit of his idol.

Best wishes
