McNally Jackson Books is an independent bookstore based in New York, New York owned and operated by Sarah McNally, a former editor at Basic Books and the child of Holly and Paul McNally, the founders of the Canadian McNally Robinson Booksellers chain.[1]

History[edit]

In 2004, Sarah McNally opened the store as a branch of McNally Robinson, a Canadian bookstore chain founded by her parents.[1] In August 2008, the New York store split from the parent chain and was renamed McNally Jackson Books.[2] The current name references Ms. McNally and her husband Christopher Jackson, a senior editor at Spiegel & Grau.[1]

By October 2011, the store had invested in an Espresso Book Machine to print both major publisher titles and approximately 700 self-published works per month.[1]

In 2012, McNally Robinson was sold from its founders, Ms. McNally's parents, to Chris Hall and Lori Baker, longtime employees of the chain.[3] McNally Jackson remained independent under the ownership of Sarah McNally.
