BUY

Buying used is good for your pocket and for the planet, so why buy new?

SELL

We buy all things entertainment from books to instruments!

TRADE

Trade credit spends like cash in all of our stores and never expires.

HOW WE BUY

Bookmans’ shelves are stocked by the community. That’s you! While you shop, we sort through your deal and set aside what we can use at that time. When you’re ready, we’ll have an offer in Bookmans trade credit or cash waiting for you. Our buyers consider items based on customer demand, current store stock, and item condition.

WHAT WE BUY

Our Entertainment Exchanges buy books, magazines, comics, music, movies, video games, musical instruments, electronics, housewares, and more. If you are unsure whether we would purchase a particular item, bring it in and let us take a look. Each store reflects the local scene and our needs and stock change daily. To get an idea of what we are currently looking for, check out our What We Want news post.

WHAT YOU GET

You have the choice of store credit or cash for those items we’re able to use from your trade-in. Bring your unwanted books, movies, music, video games, board games, and houseware in today for trade!

"BOOKMANS SHOULD BE A PROTECTED CITY LANDMARK… EVERY EMPLOYEE HAS BEEN PLEASANT AND HELPFUL, AND THEY EVEN HAVE A ONCE-A-DAY PRIZE OF GIVING A RANDOM CUSTOMER THEIR ORDER FOR FREE! THEY ARE ONE OF THE LAST BOOKSTORES I KNOW OF IN PHOENIX, AND A SPECTACULAR ONE AT THAT. I TRULY LOVE BOOKMANS.”

- REBECCA J.

Bob Oldfather opened his first Bookmans store in Tucson back in 1976.

Over 40 years later, with six stores in three Arizona markets, Bob’s creativity and willingness to take risks remains the driving force behind Bookmans.

“I would love to say I had this grand vision, that I knew it was going to be successful. But it was never about money. Ever. I just wanted a cool place for me to hang out.”
