Is it possible for main store to be sum of all secondary stores?

Hi, I am new to Magento and evaluating it from an architectural top-level to see if it will fit my purpose. Can anybody please advise if the following concept is feasible:

I have a number of hypothetical retail outlets in a small geographic region. They have pooled their payment and delivery logistics into a single operator and would like to present their full, combined product range into a single online store-front / umbrella brand, sharing customers. (kind of like an online department store)

However, they would need to manage their catalogs, stock and own ‘sub-stores’ independently from each other.

From my cursory investigation of Magento, it would seem that what I am looking for is:
1 - Some way to have a main store which combines multiple catalogs… OR
2 - A single catalog where each store only has access to the products they have added.

If this is not possible ‘out of the box’, would it be a long stretch to create this kind of functionality?
