One of my favorite places to shop in Knoxville is McKay Used Books, CDs, Movies & More. Imagine, if you will, a library sized store selling every type of book imaginable at hugely discounted rates. Add to that, shelves of music and movies, videos games and more and you have a shopping trip that might take you half the day. Along with selling books, movies and more, they also buy used items to sell in the store. Being located centrally in Knoxville, McKay’s is always jumping and each time you return they have a brand new selection due to the turn over and the volume of customers that they see.
Makes has thousands of books. They painstakingly shelve them according to category and you can find books on almost any topic imaginable. From history books and cooks books, to text books and audio books, you can find it at McKays. It is incredible to watch the number of books that come in and out each day. Find your favorite section and then start browsing. You will find that when you look back down at your watch that hours have passed and you have found a stack of books you need to buy. Of course, becaus eof the low, low prices at McKays buying a stack of books will not break the bank.

Maybe you have some stuff you need to get rid of, pass on to the next person to enjoy. If what you have is books, movies, CDs or video games… take them to McKays. When you walk in, you will see a counter to the right hand side of the doors. Grab one of the totes at the counter and fill it with the items you brought in. Take your items to the counter and then wait for them to process the items. When they get done, they will offer you cash or credit. Choose whichever works for you and then head to the store to go shop. You get more for store credit so if you are planning on shopping at McKays and finding books, movies and music to take home then a load of your stuff will get you new stuff.
McKays is easy to find. Jump on I-40 in Knoxville. Look for the Papermill exit. When you come off the interstate, follow the signs to Papermill.
