Update: Bookmans River Arrives with a Grand Opening Celebration!

Our brand-new Tucson store, located at 4841 N. Stone Ave is ready to go, and we are so excited to bring the greenest and most energy efficient Bookmans store that we have ever built.

While our Northwest and Midtown locations have closed, we’ve brought along as much as we possibly could to create a beautiful new space. We have ensured that everything we could repurpose, reuse, and revamp, has infused Bookmans River with everything you have come to expect from your favorite local bookstore.

Let’s celebrate! Join us November 10th for our Grand Opening Party! The parking lot will be filled with fun for all. Music, games and prizes await, and don’t forget the food trucks! But the party doesn’t stop there! Come inside and browse the orange shelves. Check out the expansive musical instrument department. And because we are committed to continuing the life of existing materials, peer in on the record room, equipped with electro-static record cleaners and a magical device that unwarps vinyl, (powered by a flux capacitor… JK!)!

Doc Brown saying, the flux capacitor!

Bookmans is truly excited to bring this new location to Tucson and we can’t wait for you to make it your own!

See you November 10th!

    Which midtown store closed?! Are you still doing the sports equipment thing? The store on Wilmot had such a terrible parking lot. But I still thought of that one as newish since the demolition of the Grant one. I can’t even picture where River Stone is? Is it new construction?

      It is in the shopping Plaza that is next to Sam’s Club, just north of the Tucson Maal.

      Dude, they haven’t been doing the “sports equipment thing” since at least 5 years… Sounds like it’s high time for you to swing by a Bookman’s store again. 😉

    Is the store on Golf Links and Harrison still going to open?

    We heard today at the Speedway shop that the opening is tomorrow. Is there a ‘soft opening’ before the grand?

    How do I bring my books and CD’s in for you to look at? Do I make an appointment or just show up with everything. Is there anyone to help me carry things into the store or is there a shopping basket I can put things in?

    How can I track to see when my gift cards will arrive at my home ?
