McKay Used Books Moving to Bellevue Mar. 10, Area Man Won't Drive That Far

Posted By on Mon, Jan 30, 2012 at 10:37 AM

Way back in March 2011, when deed geek J.R. Lind informed us that McKay Used Books had finalized the purchase of three tracts of land at I-40 and Old Hickory, he delivered the news with this overlay: "McKay has been working to add the location — its second; the first is in the former Service Merchandise at White Bridge Road and Charlotte Pike — for several months, having pulled a building permit in September." (Remember buying stuff at Service Merchandise and having it come down that weird conveyor belt? Who thought that was a good idea? Anyway.)

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.
