The Zombie Hoard is coming… for your donations! The Walking Fed presented by Jay’s CD & Hobby is the first ever Zombie Food Drive! Keep the Zombies at bay and donate one of two ways!
Make Jay Pay and drop off a can of food at any of the Jay’s CD & Hobby locations and Jay will match your donation by giving $1 for each can of food you donate to the Food Bank of Iowa or a maximum donation of $10,000 if more than 10,000 cans of food are collected!

Zombies will invade Des Moines on Saturday, March 28th at our final event! Instead of brains, they want your cash & food donations! Stop by Jay’s SE 14th St location between Noon-6pm on March 28th as Zombies will take your donation and take advantage of great onsite donation incentives like 20% off anything in store @ Jay’s if you come as a zombie and donate!

Why are donations for the Food Bank of Iowa important in March?
-1 in 8 Iowans are food insecure
-1 in 5 Iowa children do not have enough to eat
-64% of the Food Bank of Iowa clients have to choose between buying food or paying for medical care or medicine
-65% of clients of the Food Bank of Iowa have to choose between buying food or paying for their utilities.
-For every $1 donation, The Food Bank of Iowa can provide 4.5 meals.

The Walking Fed food drive, Jay’s CD & Hobby and LAZER 103.3 are proud supporters of the Food Bank of Iowa.

Special considerations go out to Vanity & Glamour Cosmetics for providing make up for the Zombies on March 28th.

I recently made a review about an unpleasant experience I had with Jay's return policy. A couple weeks later we were able to get it resolved. The owner's response to my complaint was swift (I just hadn't checked back on my review till a couple weeks afterward). Despite one employee not sticking to the policies of the company, the owner definitely stood by his return policy. I returned to exchange Saga for another more "PG" graphic novel, Avatar: The Search. When we found out it wasn't in stock the manager rush ordered the book. Thank you, Nate! Despite a bad apple I left satisfied with my experience in the end, and I will be returning for more graphic novels soon! I recommend Jay's CD & Hobby for anyone interested in getting into comics and the like.

Walked into the store and noticed the criminally high prices on everything. I do not recommend this store to anyone.

BUYER BEWARE! This is a fun place for window shopping, but they're overpriced. They take no accountability for the condition of their merchandise, and the customer service is horrid. You can do much better on Amazon or other online sites, especially if you enjoy being treated like a human being.

They are extremely rude there and not to mention the guy who works in the back were you sell your items is on the sex offender registry now that I know that I wont be going in there because I don't want him to see my address on my id and then try to come to my house and attempt to rape me and my daughter. His name is Jesse Gomez look him up they cant say anything about this review being posted because it is public knowledge. Take caution when you take your kids in there

!!Very Rude Staff & Super Over Priced!! Seriously and the people are not very knowledgeable about their own products, they seem not to care about the condition of their merchandise, it's super bright which let me see all the dirt and broken products priced for 60 or more that you can buy brand new for far less. The customer service is terrible, i asked about a specific game and instead of a kind or polite answer i was given a finger point and a "if we have it it's over there somewhere". When checking out I was waiting for my overpriced games and viewing the counter displays, the clerk tried to ignore me and help someone else. Then while checking me out I asked a question about a toy and instead of an answer he picked up the phone and ignored me completely. No organization, no cleaning habits, and NO customer service. I'll not be returning.

Jay's fulfills a need in Des Moines that is not satisfied by many other businesses in the metro area. Not JUST a music, or movie, or comic book store. Walk through one part of the store and it will be a walk down memory lane and then you turn and find something truly unique that you never knew existed. The atmosphere is relaxed and you find a good mix of just about everything in pop-culture, gaming, collecting and more. Jay's is truly a retail destination to Des Moines' south side. A well lit and safe place for people to come shop and game. If you haven't made your way to Jay's CD & Hobby, you are really depriving yourself of a real treat.

Can't think of a time I left the store without finding something I wanted. Great deal on vintage video games and systems.
