An Arizona institution for over 30 years, Bookmans Entertainment Exchange has built our reputation on the concept that "used" is not a dirty word. With six stores in Tucson, Mesa, Phoenix, and Flagstaff, we rely on our customers for what we sell - books, music, movies, video games and systems, magazines, comics, electronics, tchotchkes, and musical instruments, and more. That's nearly 114,000 combined square feet of media recycled from the community. We provide the shelves but it's your stuff that goes on them.
Bookmans' six Arizona locations total nearly
114,000 square feet of recycled books, music,
movies, video games, and other media.
Every day thousands of people come through our doors and Bookmans represents something different to each of them. For readers, gamers, film fans, and music junkies, the sheer size and variety of our selection ensures there's always something new to discover, and our casual, knowledgeable staff is as passionate about what we carry as you are. We offer free WiFi and love pets. Our popular in-store events range from art exhibits, musical performances, and anime festivals to reptile adoptions, yoga classes, and yo-yo workshops.
We support the arts, music, and literacy in schools and in our community. We honor the invaluable work of teachers with our Educators Program and encourage the love of reading in our youngest customers through our Kids Club. And every year we hold the Bookmans' Reading Challenge, during which Arizona elementary school students compete to read as many books as possible; the school with the highest number of books read per student wins $5,000 to use towards what they need.

Stepping into a Bookmans alters your view of what buying used is and should be, and our philosophy of DIY creativity, integrity, and community involvement has helped make us one of Arizona's most beloved local businesses. Bob knew exactly what he wanted when he opened the first Bookmans 30 years ago. He just wanted to build a cool book store where he and his friends could hang out. Find out why the AZ Daily Sun calls us "a cultural hotspot" and why the Tucson Weekly says Bookmans is "the Olympus of used book stores."
