    Great place to shop for movies & everything. If you want something & you have the money, I'd advise you to get it because it's probably an 85% chance that it won't be there the next time you visit.

    You can find some good deals at McKay's, but buyer beware: they don't always give a good trade value for your items, and sometimes their DVD/Blu-ray/videogame prices are higher than new!

    My allergies go crazy when I come here from all the dust and mold from other peoples homes. I know this is not their fault, but just be warned you may be sneezy while waiting a long time for your #.

    I personally do not like this place. They have a lot of books, but never any books that I actually need (such as Of Mice and Men by Steinbeck). The atmosphere is creepy and unsettling as well.

    I bought 6 movies. Three of which were brand new and never opened. All for under $20 total! Will definitely be going back for books. Incredible place.

    I am a recovering McKay addict. My floor almost collapsed under the weight of so many books. I bought a Nook and I think it may have saved the lives of myself and my family. Be warned readers.

    If you love actual books, you cream find it here, and music, movies and all things the bibliophile will love!

    It can be very difficult to find a specific item. Also watch the prices, some stuff is more expensive than buying new. If looking for kids' books, it's a gold mine.

    Watch their prices. Graphic novels, movies, popular books, and games are often more expensive here than they are brand new.

    Seller beware. They had stickers on our books before they even made us an offer. After we declined we had to remove all of the stickers from the book covers.

    Love McKay's but I am getting frustrated with constantly finding used books and movies that are actually more expensive than buying the same item new.

    The prices seem to have gone up with the move from the old store. I can still spend quite a while just browsing, but I haven't really purchased from here much in a while.

    A lot of their paperbacks cost more used than new. When I asked about this the girl laughed at me and said that they were not competing with anyone else and they could charge whatever they wanted to!

    It's one of those stores you think you'll spend 5 minutes but you end up spending 2 hours there. Addictive! Full of childhood memories!

    The amount they give for trade seems to get smaller and smaller! Shame too since this seems like the only place to go.

    The employees were absolutely worthless at helping locate a specific title. She wouldn't even come out from behind the counter.

    Awful place for games, if you're here strictly for games/systems you'll see they're not very cheap and you might as well get new ones elsewhere.

    The check-in special is a joke. "We're not affiliated with that." Fail.
