Can this new bookstore make it in Parkdale?

A new bookstore opened in Parkdale this summer. At its helm is a self-described book collector who turned a hobby into a career when he found himself unexpectedly out of work. When David McGowan opened his buy-and-sell book shop he built all the shelves with his own hands and stocks them with a "no filler" collection of gently used literature.
