Yes, it's possible. However, the smaller indies will face the same issues as the large big box stores. High leases, utilities, computer, inventory, website and advertising. And the big expense ... payroll. What would be the salary of a knowledgeable employee? And you would have to do it with lower margins from distributors, competition from online retailers/libraries and customers unwilling to pay full list price.

It's a tough business.
