This is true. And the decline/closing of independent book stores is all too common. I was quite surprised when Shelf Life opened. Don't see these types of book stores opening, they're usually shutting doors.
Interestingly though, Pages in Kensington is flourishing. A couple months ago, CBC had a little news piece on the few book stores that are still alive across Canada and Pages is apparently doing very well. They also are very community based with readings and events. Hope they stick around for many years to come.
