Our Store

“Not many bookstores have had a gigantic figure of the Hulk to greet its customers. But then, Gardner’s Used Books and Music tends to take things to the extreme.

Its 23,000 square feet of space makes it the city’s – and likely the state’s – largest used bookstore, with estimates of 800,000 to 1 million books on its shelves.

Gardner’s didn’t start big, however. When Richard Gardner began the business in 1991, he had a total of 384 books to sell, stored in boxes on his office floor. Now, the shop has rooms devoted to mystery and romance novels, along with large sections devoted to science fiction, general fiction, military history, horror, history, biography and general nonfiction.

The store expanded to carry used video and DVDs, music records and CDs, comics and associated collectibles.”
