Circumstances have changed, Jerry! As WSMV reported on Friday, McKay will not be twinning itself as once planned, but rather will be pulling up stakes in West Nashville and moving the entire operation to Bellevue, where there will be more room for electronics and electronics accessories — which I'm guessing provide a nicer padding to the bottom line than used books, even if the business is called McKay Used Books and all.
Nothing against Bellevue, but there are very few things that will get me to drive to there — in fact, I can't think of a single one at the moment. Shopping at McKay, though I have enjoyed doing that quite a bit, is not something I will start driving to Bellevue to do. So I guess I need to spend my remaining store credit before Feb. 27, and find another store that'll give me a couple bucks for the two copies I inexplicably own of My Life: The Autobiography of Mobb Deep's Prodigy. I guess it was nice knowing you, chain used bookseller. Say "hey" to the beaver for me.
