If you’re an avid reader, gamer, or fan of old records then you can appreciate this resale paradise located in Knoxville, Nashville, and Chattanooga, TN. You can buy gently used items or sell your own for a little extra cash. Take the time to wander through the stacks and find something in need of a new life.
McKay’s Used Book Store is a treasure trove of discounts from books, movies, music, and more. Gift cards for McKay’s would be perfect for any parent, child, or teacher in your life. Teachers already spend a lot of their own money on their classrooms so they deserve extra consideration!
I enjoy visiting the Nashville location when I’m in town purely for this awesome mural.
All of the items are divided up into categories and labeled making them relatively easy to find. There are children’s books, self-help, cookbooks, comic books, graphic novels, new releases, classics- you name it. They’ve got an excellent selection at unbeatable prices. I’m a fan of “old book smell” so I’ve been known to roam the stacks with my coffee purely for the ambiance.
McKay’s has so many DVD’s that there are piles of them in waist level bins for you to sort through to your heart’s content. Before dumpster diving for discount DVD’s be sure to check the shelves first. There are multiple copies of popular films, TV shows, and documentaries. In my experience the children’s selection of DVD’s is better in Nashville but I may have simply stopped in on a good day.
Forget the days of downloading music. The upper floor of McKay’s is fully stocked with CD’s and records of all genres. You’re sure to find your favorite.
Toys, Games, & More
McKay’s has loads of vintage toys and action figures in mint condition as well as board games. You can also buy gaming consoles including Super Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation plus the games to go with them.
McKay’s is a thrifty nerd’s paradise and I stop in as often as I can for gifts or to treat myself. They make it super easy to sell your used items for cash so give it a go and see how much money you have sitting around the house! If you’ve been then you have to tell me- what’s the best thing you’ve found at McKay’s?
