Grant/Campbell Bookmans Staying Put

Posted By on Thu, Sep 13, 2007 at 12:20 PM

The Bookmans on Grant Road and Campbell Avenue--rumored to be moving--is in fact staying put, according to this here press release:

Bookmans Entertainment Exchange signed a lease agreement retaining its current location at 1930 E. Grant Road at Campbell Avenue. Previously there was question that the corner location would be slated for re-development, however the new lease option secures that the city landmark will stay put through 2013. Bookmans on Grant averages 1,800 customers a day, more than 670,000 every year.

"It is great news for us, and great for our customers who were concerned that we may need to relocate," said Sean Feeney, Bookmans executive vice president. "We have a steady stream of regular customers who have come to this location to read, listen to music, and use our community room for events for more than 20 years."

The Grant location opened in September1976, and since that time the local chain of used books, music, movies, electronics and free wi-fi has grown to six locations in Tucson, Flagstaff, Mesa, and Phoenix.
