Default Local bookstore website

Is there any reason to believe that a local bookstore can compete with Amazon or Borders by offering a large selection of books with a shopping cart on a website, however well done?

It seems to me that a local bookstore has a natural market with its neighborhood and regional market, but competing with the bookstore giants on their own turf is unlikely to succeed. The website can promote foot traffic, but not the purchase of books online for customers far away.

What do you think?
