You probably have to be nuts to open a bookstore of any sort these days, but doing so in downtown Ann Arbor, which is presently without a general interest new bookstore due to the closing of both Shaman drum and Borders #1, is probably less nuts than opening one in many other places.
The owners have - of course - a blog describing their progress with the new store.
Good luck to them!
