The system does not allow you to add more than one Logistics Area with Logistics Use Over The Counter Stock inside a Location.
System is working as designed. However, the recommended is that you set up a separate site, to ensure that inventory reserved for Sales Orders is also not considered for Over-The-Counter Sales. Over-the-counter sales does not make an availability check and cannot consider existing reservations.
