Our Store History:

In 2018 we hit a major milestone and celebrated 50 years in business! Duncanville Bookstore’s history begins in 1968 and has been in it’s current location since 1986. The original owners, Jerry & Pam Hoffman, are remembered by many and their love for the industry is still emanating around the store. Current owner, Andy McMahon, shopped here as a child and is maintaining its legacy for the years to come!

Andy McMahon – Owner

Andy is a life long comic collector who started reading and collecting comics around the age of 4. His grandmother used the Sunday Funnies to help him learn to read and when he got older, he would walk to Duncanville Bookstore every summer day and buy comics like Justice League, Spider-Man and even X-Men! After a serious car accident in 1998, Andy realized that life was short and he decided he would only work a job he loved. In fact, in 2001 he started setting up booths at comic conventions and eventually became the stores manager with the intent of buying it one day. Then, In 2005 his dream came true. He and his family purchased Duncanville Bookstore from the original owners and to this day, is still maintaining that amazing store atmosphere he fell in love with back in his youth.

Jimmie McMahon – Owner

A life long resident of Duncanville, Jimmie Lee McMahon has made her mark on the community throughout the years. The daughter of James and Betty Gibbons, she has been involved with charitable and fraternal organizations such as the Order of the Eastern Star and the Masons her entire adult life. In the 1960’s, she met and married Harold McMahon and had a son named Andy in 1970. Jimmie worked in the banking industry for over 20 years and retired from that to eventually become the head of the Texas Order of the Eastern Star, serving one term as it’s Worthy Grand Matron. Mrs. McMahon also is a licensed auctioneer that enjoys helping with charitable events to raise money for the less fortunate. She is the Chief Financial Officer for Duncanville Bookstore and is the one who has the unenviable task of trying to keep the spending in check around here. She also devotes a lot of her time taking care of her other child, Coco the dog.

Harold “Mac” McMahon – Owner

Born in 1941 in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania outside Pittsburg, Harold grew up with a passion for cars and scooters. If it had an engine and wheels, he wanted it. The army brought him to Texas in the 1960’s and that is where he met Jimmie Lee Gibbons. They were soon married and in 1970, they had a son they named Andy. Throughout the years, Harold was a hard working man who always took care of his family, often working two jobs. He also loved working on cars and owned many Street Rods and was part of several different car clubs. Unfortunately, his son did not share his gifts with a wrench, instead, preferring to read. Harold would often buy his son comic books to help encourage this habit believing that it did not matter what a person read, as long as they were reading. When the chance came along to help his son realize his dream of owning a comic book shop, he happily helped as much as he could, even working in the store, helping at conventions and helping get the store’s internet business off the ground. Harold passed away in December of 2015 but he is still a big part of what Duncanville Bookstore is all about. He may be gone but we all hope he would be proud of us as we grow and serve the collecting community.
