The World’s Biggest Bookstore may not be a bookstore for much longer. Local news website Yonge Street is reporting that the owners of the building—the family of Jack Cole, who co-founded the store—are not going to be renewing their lease with the bookstore’s current owner, Indigo Books & Music. The property’s real estate agent, Stuart Smith, tells Yonge Street that the family is looking for a new single tenant to take over the 64,000-square-foot space after the lease expires in 2013.
