Used to be a great used bookstore. Since they moved into their new location right on Battleground, they seem like they've become "commercialized". It's not the small, quaint little bookstore it used to be. Now, it's like any other business that is growing too fast, it's now all about the $$$. CD prices have gone through the roof. Why pay retail for a used CD/DVD when you can get a brand new one in the box for the same price.

Eddie McKay's is the BEST! I love going in and browsing and just gettin lost amongst the stacks. they have a great "free" section and a fabulous kids section too.

They are a little picky as to what books they will buy from you, though. that is the only complaint I have!

Ed McKay's used to be great on their prices and selection back in the day. I've been a customer since the beginning. Now, when you go in there it's like visiting all the high priced seller's on Ebay. They give you nothing for your items, look them up on ebay and sell them for the highest price that it sold for. I've lost a lot for them and very rarely go there for anything anymore. Not to metion, you can't call and get any information for the slack workers that work there. They just tell you that you need to come in and look for yourself. When the gas prices are high, your time is limited and you live in the city next to it then it's not worth the time especially since the employees know exactly what your looking for is and are just too lazy to go and look. Customer service is number 1. Yeah, right! Not here it isn't. You'll be lucky to see one of the 20 people working there ever out from behind the counter. Your choice on whether to shop there or not. If you like high prices and unhelpful customer service stay with ebay or visit this place. They are one in the same.

Every time I enter McKay's, I feel at home. The staff greets everyone with a warm "HELLO!" The book selection is wonderful. The prices are superb! My favorite section is the children's area. Other used book stores usually have a poor selection children's books. Not so at McKay's. The selection of children's books is wonderful! My 4 year old always manages to find a stack of books -- everything from fiction to easy readers to chapter books to fact. Trading your books is quite easy and the credit you receive is very reasonable (sometimes it is evey quite generous!). I am always amazed at how knowledgeable the staff is regarding book genre and titles. (Mainly b/c all my questions usually center around children's books.) The only negative is parking -- but that doesn't keep me away. I'd rather park in the strip mall next door and walk to McKay's then decide not to visit there. Book lovers check out this haven of books.

PROS: prices, selection of children's books
CONS: parking

Edward McKay's is a great place for used books in Greensboro. They have a fabulous selection that is always rotating. They also have one of the best selections of used CD's that I've ever seen.

Looking for an organized used book store? Greensboro has one. Books, movies, and DVDs are orgainized according to categories. A children's section features youth and teen fiction and nonfiction books. Looking for a classic, a family movie, how-to books, educational, textbooks, books on tape? Check here.
McKay's buys used books on either a cash or in-store credit basis.

This is a great store to take your old books. I used to sell them in my yard sales for 25 to 50 cents each but now I take them here. You have two choices with them you can take a store credit or you can take the money. I always take the credit because they give you a little more value and I can use the credit towards dvds or other books. You will find a large selection of used books here from family, science, children, health, business etc. The downside to this store is the parking. They are tucked back in a little mini mall and only have a couple of parking spots.
