Bookstore Queen West Toronto

Can an indie bookstore survive on Queen West?

In an area of Toronto dominated by big retailers like Chapters and The Gap, can a small storefront specializing in remaindered books survive? We've already seen one beloved independent bookstore on Queen West suffer a tragic fate. Will it be different for the new "BMV Express"?

BMV Books owner Patrick Templeton, who has three locations in the city, owns the building and is setting up a small test shop to see if he can make it work. And the deals that can be found are pretty awesome.

See my review of BMV Express in the bookstores section.
