Small Business Saturday kicks off the shopping season in McKinney on Saturday, Nov. 30 and the McKinney Chamber of Commerce will be encouraging businesses and residents to buy local, which means purchasing from businesses in McKinney rather than outside the area or over the internet. For every $100 spent in McKinney, $68 stays in McKinney to be reinvested and recycled by supporting another local business. When residents buy local, the sales tax collected on the product goes back into the community.
This 12 Days of Christmas promotion runs from Dec. 2-13 and offers a wide variety of deals from local merchants.
Each day through the 12 Days of Christmas promotion, one McKinney business is a featured merchant of the day. Be sure to visit on the participating merchants and take advantage of their special offers.
The McKinney Chamber of Commerce and the McKinney Community Development Corporation have been running exciting new promotions to help generate awareness within McKinney, Texas about the benefits of buying local while driving traffic to our local merchants. Due to the success of 2012's 12 Days of Christmas promotion, it's back! Here’s how it works:
- From Dec. 2-13, consumers post a picture of their purchase to Facebook.com/McKinneyFirst.
- Photos must be taken at a participating merchant between Dec. 2-13.
- Post must include the name of the merchant from which they purchased it.
- All qualified participants are entered into a drawing to win a $300 American Express Shop Small Reward Card.
