Something like Harvest Moon but the focus is slightly different. You're running a store instead of a farm.

That's it in a nutshell.  You run a shop and explore a town.  As you expand the shop, more people move into the village, leading to more items being available to sell, etc.  Initial impressions aren't promising, as people are saying there's not much to do and it gets repetitive quickly.  It seems like it might be a game that grows over time, though, as you get more stuff to do.  Even though I preordered at Amazon a month ago, my copy still hasn't shipped.  The game is backordered, and it looks like they might not even have enough copies for preorders.

sounds like Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale but without the fun.

I decided to cancel my Amazon preorder.  There are just too many other games to play.  If impressions turn more favorable as people play more of the game, I'll probably pick it up on sale on the eShop sometime in the future.
