Every November, Bookmans celebrates supporting locally owned businesses with Shop Local Give Local Month. We believe independently owned businesses are the key to creating and maintaining cultural diversity. This is what makes Tucson, Arizona so unique. Our lovely city is stuffed with unique local businesses making a name for themselves, each store just as diverse as the last. We could not be more proud! Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite hard-working local businesses and share some local love.

Slim Shop Martial Arts and Fitness

“Nothing’s more important than good health. So why aren’t you working out? Probably because you’re just now checking us out. We’re a one-stop fitness emporium.  Take advantage of us, and pretty soon everyone will be checking you out.”

This is an incredible business. They specialize in creating a safe space for children and adults to learn a variety of blood pumping workouts such as yoga, Zumba, Tae Kwon Do, self-defense, and so much more!

V Entertainment

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.” -Winnie The Pooh

We at Bookmans love seeing new up and coming businesses like V Entertainment grow! This small business specializes in balloon twisting and face painting for children of all ages. We can’t wait to work with them in the future!

Different Drum Learning

“If you’ve got a problem, take it out on a drum.” -Neil Peart

This is one of those amazing groups that Bookmans buzz with excitement. Different Drum Learning focuses on a personalized approach to learning for students of all backgrounds. They have a variety of programs including ones focusing on sensory processing, sensory integration, music therapy, behavior, and many more amazing learning experiences.
