Bookmans Used Books: East

After his father sold him the store for just one dollar, Bob Oldfather opened Bookmans in 1976. By 1986, with the store’s original building set to be demolished, Bookmans took a gamble on an empty Food Giant grocery store at the corner of Grant and Campbell. Now with six stores in Tucson, Phoenix, Mesa, and Flagstaff, Bookmans Entertainment Exchange buys, sells, and trades used books, music, movies, video games, and musical instruments.
