Three Things About Bookmans

1. Bob Oldfather purchased “the business” from his Dad over 30 years ago for $1.00 and baby, look at him now!
2. Bookmans now has 6 locations throughout the state of Arizona. Books you say? Tons! And CDs, DVDs, magazines, books on tape and lots of other interesting “stuff.” Mrs. Green highly recommends spending time there – whether you are a native or planning to come to Tucson. It’s even great for people watching.Harrison
3. Harrison Kressler and the creative team at Bookmans are ROCK STARS! They just won a NATIONAL Silver Addy Award from the American Advertising Federation for the Bookmans Does Book Dominos video. They were competing against the big dogs like Coca-Cola and McDonalds but good taste and creativity prevailed. They are audacious! Check it out!
