We buy, sell, and trade…

McKay Used Books is unlike any other bookstore you’ve been to. We have hundreds of thousands of different items on our shelves on any given day for your browsing pleasure.

Looking for books? We have fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, graphic novels, and comics.  Are you a movie buff looking to fill out your collection, trying to find something to watch tonight, or maybe a cheap date night flick? Check out our DVDs and BluRays in every genre.  Long commute? Try our audio book section – we’ve got books on CD and cassette. Is music your thing? We’ve literally got thousands of cds in all different categories and now Vinyl and cassettes too!  Did you say that you are a gamer? Well that’s good, because we carry RPG materials, every type of video game and video game accessory, current and retro.

How do we get all this stuff you ask? From customers like you of course. We buy, sell, and trade merchandise up until 1 hour before closing every day, no appointment necessary. See our Frequently Asked Questions page for details on the trade in & selling process.
