Here are some previous similar questions with answers - ranging from free-standing units to ones installed in brick or stone chimneys, so costs can range from maybe $500 range on up to $3000-4000 range for a normal sized installation.

If this is a through-house chimney, you may choose to just cap the ends and leave it in place after removing the stove. If a through-the-wall flue system to a direct-vent exhaust right outside the wall, or maybe a metal bracket-supported stainless steel flue outside and clear of the wall, that also is easy to remove - so on the order of $400-600 will commonly take care of that removal and a metal patch plate over the wall openings.

Full siding and interior wall repair of the flue (and sometimes separate air intake) hole(s) can run from $200-500 or even more range additional, depending on materials and whether the entire wall needs to be repainted to get an acceptable match or you can accept a close match with a custom-mixed paint to touch up the repairs. Outdoor hole is quite commonly patched with a plate or cover piece because getting a siding match is no longer viable - though robbing a piece or two of siding off the least visible side of the house for the repair and then replacing that with a non-matching piece of similar siding is a common solution for that. Interior you can usually get a pretty decent match.

Contractor categories in Search the List - while a Chimney expert from Chimney Sweep or Masonry category can do the actual removal, by the time you bring in wall and ceiling and maybe roof repair, capping holes, possibly flooring patch under where stove stood, etc - you may well be better off with a Remodeling - General Contractor for the job.
