If you have visited Bookmans Mesa recently, you have probably noticed some changes. What kind of changes? I’ll give you a hint. Someone new is responsible for providing even more rad products, even more great customer service and even more fun than ever. How is this possible, you might ask. To find out, let’s go behind the trade counter with Gus, our new assistant manager! Driven by his love of video games and musical instruments, Gus comes from the helm of our Electronics Department and is doing a bang-up job right out of the gate. His vision is clear, “To offer the best consumer electronics, books, musical instruments, and entertainment needs at the best prices available.” He loves talking to customers and hearing their Bookmans stories.

Gus is a native of Mesa, Arizona. Having graduated from high school here, he holds great love for the community around him. As a youngster, he regularly visited Bookmans. If you ask him why he chose Bookmans for work, his response is simple, “Bookmans is the best used media and bookstore in the valley. We offer a wide range of products, usually at half price, and we’re AWESOME.”
In his spare time, Gus enjoys his PS4, strumming his guitar and hanging out with his sweetheart, Hannah. His favorite game system is the N64, Super Smash in particular. He also enjoys soccer and Howard The Duck. (C’mon, who doesn’t?) A fellow Star Wars buff, we believe Gus is the true pilot and secret owner of the Millennium Falcon. He also loves The Beatles and credits them for his love of playing music today.

In addition to his vast knowledge of sci-fi, instruments, and electronics, Gus is also THE go-to man for Pokémon. He stocks, processes and fills our ever-changing and growing stock of those common and hard to find Pokémon cards. If you haven’t been in for a while or you just need another reason to come by, stop in Bookmans Mesa to meet Gus. #GOGUS!
