Bookmans Entertainment Exchange announced today that it will relocate its Grant and Campbell store to the current Bookmans Sports Exchange location at 3330 E. Speedway in early 2017.
With the impending Grant Road expansion, Bookmans has been searching for a new location for the original Bookmans Entertainment Exchange, which is currently located at 1930 E. Grant Road.
“This year marks 40 years in Tucson and Bookmans wants to continue to serve the Tucson community that has been so great to us,” said Bob Oldfather, Bookmans Owner and Founder. “Securing the future of our original store with this relocation will allow us to do just that.”
In order to make room for the relocation, Bookmans Sports Exchange will be closing.
Since opening 3 years ago Bookmans Sports Exchange has built a solid customer base, but has struggled to find the right mix of inventory. “The goal was to provide Tucson with quality, used sporting goods Bookmans-style, but the supply of used goods coming in from our customers couldn’t keep up with the demand” said Sean Feeney, Bookmans President. “This forced us to stock more new items than we ever intended to, which wasn’t in keeping with our Bookmans identity.”
Bookmans Sports Exchange will kick off a store wide closing sale on September 30. “Bookmans Sports was a great ride, but we are excited to be reinvesting in our roots by moving our Grant location to a remodeled and updated building. It makes perfect sense to slide the Bookmans Grant store into this location in the Rancho Center Shopping Plaza,” Feeney said.
