World's Biggest Bookstore

Did you know Canada.. The World's Biggest Bookstore is a bookstore located in Toronto, Ontario!

The store was started in 1980 by Jack Cole and Carl Cole, former owners of Coles Bookstore - it is now owned by Indigo Books and Music.

Known for it's 20 kilometres of bookshelves and no frills image with 65,000 square feet of floor space.

Unfortunately the store no longer lives up to it's name, a Barnes and Noble at 5th Avenue and 18th Street in New York City boasts more floor space.
