This Enormous Warehouse Of Used Books In Tennessee Will Be Your New Favorite Destination
The bookstore seems to be going the way of the dinosaur nowadays, a hero of the past and a keeper of stories that are all too quickly available online. Still, here in the south, we love to experience the past the way it was meant to be experienced, and that’s why Tennessee plays host to McKay, a warehouse chock full of used books, CDs, DVDs, and oh so much more. Have you ever made it out to one of their Tennessee-based locations?
McKay's is a fantastic place where folks bring their previously loved media like books, video games, movies, and electronics to sell for cash or store credit.
The store then uses all donated and bought materials to stock their shelves at fabulously low prices. There are multiple locations all over Tennessee, and each offers up a differentiating and vast inventory.
You can buy gift cards or come with a wad of cash for your new books, but keep in mind that McKay's does all sales in person: there's no opportunity to buy online. You have to come into the store to indulge, and we definitely like it that way.
Hundreds of customers come daily to trade their old books and media pieces for something new, which means inventory is constantly changing for the better. The store is exhaustively organized as well, with all books put into a computer system that makes it easier to find what you're looking for.
There's also a free box located outside every McKay's location. They're outside the front doors, and you'll want to keep in mind that these were items rejected due to age or condition. If you dig your way through, you may find yourself a diamond in the rough!
You'll want to check the store's calendar for fun community events, as well. You never know what fun is being promoted by your local McKay's!
The store has reported bringing in as many as 10,000 new items a day, which means that this revolving door of good stories and musical gems is a great place to spend a Saturday or to stock your personal library.
Have you been? Would you go? We're consistently impressed by the expansive options available at each location, so it's worth the trek out and about!
You can visit McKay’s in Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Nashville, Tennessee.
PS: If you happen to find yourself at the McKay’s in Nashville,
this local eatery is divine!
