I always know I can find what I am looking for here. I am originally from Queens and this store rivals the best of NYC. I was so grateful to find such an extensive, hip joint in Raleigh. The employees are colorful and eclectic which is exactly what I want out of my local Indy bookstore and contrary to their exterior, they are always extremely helpful and friendly. What's also cool is you can buy a book & bring it right back from some store credit for another book or whatever, which makes this store cheaper than it's already cheap prices. The only drawback is the location, YIKES! Capital BLVD, while somewhat convenient to downtown....what a drag. They are literally, the only thing Capital BLVD has going for it. Best selection, best prices, best customer service. A+

I have been a REAL loyal customer of Ed Mckay's since they were in a tiny little building next to Chucky Cheese. They have the best deals in the triangle on books and cds, hands down. The customer service is always top notch, these kids know their stuff and are always happy to give suggestions and make the extra effort to find what you need. One young lady in particular looked through about 10 shelves of "R's" for me to find my book on a busy Saturday, bless her heart. I would definitely recommend Ed Mckay to anyone in the market for books, movies, and so on. The only advice I would give is be prepared for a bit of a wait if you are selling them stuff on a Saturday, I never mind since they have so much great stuff to look at.

I first started shopping at McKay's about two years ago after moving to the area and being frustrated with the used book stores down town by NCSU's campus (i.e. Nice Price and Reader's Corner--and these stores are fine...I, guess...just wanted more selection) which are within walking distance from my place. Now the only reason I ever go outside the belt line is to shop at McKay's.

My favorite sections are Classics, Non-Fiction Audio Books, and Rock CDs. These areas are always well stocked with lots of cool stuff and sometimes some really kooky/off beat material I wouldn't expect to see any where else.

When I first started checking the store out I was a bit intimidated by the staff--they all seemed so intellectual with their expertise in music and books and such--but so far everyone has not only been very helpful but actually came off as actually being nice people without the soulier-than-thou attitude I'd expect from School Kids Records.

And, oh yeah, their prices are cheap cheap cheap. Unless you have to have it sealed the moment it comes out (like brand new DVDs, books, etc), why the heck wouldn't you try used first. BTW, I have yet to return a DVD or CD because of poor condition.

Go here before Borders, Barnes & Noble, the mall, Amazon.com, etc...

This new location is AWESOME. Very well laid out and easy to access. Very busy, but they such a great selection you would be hard-pressed NOT to consider it if you have extra books to get rid of and get some trade credit to look through every thing they have!

The staff was helpful but gave me an opportunity to look around independently. They have a variety of title just for Sunday afternoon reading or learning more about any religion. They have it or they know where you can get it.

I am an avid reader and like to buy used books. This is a great place to sell your old books and buy books you haven't read before. The set up is easy to find the book you are looking for. I am all excited to see what great find I am going to come across.

I have bought and sold from Edward McKay several times and I have never been disappointed. They have a great selection of new and used books and DVDs. I have gotten lots of great movies and books for my children.

Bring your old books, cds, and movies, get some trade credit and then spend it at Edward McKay! They have a great selection of books, even a whole room devoted to children's books! We try to go every week because the selection is always changing. They give a fair amount for trade in and the books are reasonably priced!

My first experience with Edward McKay was in Greensboro and I have been hooked ever since. All of their inventory comes from people who trade their books, CDs, and movies in to the store. This is a great place to get lost in the stacks for a few hours and they cater to a large variety of clientele. Everyone from students selling text books to beachgoers unloading their paperbacks from the summer can be found at Ed McKay. There is a plethora of choices to be found and it is worth digging to find them.

Ed McKays is a tremedous place to not only look for used books, but also find used CD's and video games. They also have a pretty extensive used DVD and VHS section as well.

Greta easy to get to location

I have been an Edward McKay customer for as long as I've been buying books. The selection and prices can't be beat. And even better, you can trade in your old books for credit towards your future purchases!

PROS: great prices
CONS:
