How much would it cost to open a bookstore in Canada?

I am interested in opening a bookstore in Canada, but not in a major city like Toronto. Do you have any idea about start up costs for this? Thanks!

    The first question to ask is, it possible to make a profit operating a small, independent bookstore at a time when storefront bookstores are closing in record numbers. 

    A bookstore would be an especially expensive start up as you would need to invest in a large, slow moving inventory.    

    You could possibly take over someone else's failing bookstore cheaper than starting one up from scratch.

    As commercial real estate costs vary by a lot, depending where in Canada one is, no one can even guess.

    Plus, there will be paying for stock to sell, too. Bigger store, more stock, more money for stock.
