1. Protect McKinney’s Local Character and Prosperity

McKinney is unique in its character and local business environment. By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help maintain our local diversity and distinct culture.

2. Community Well-Being

McKinney owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to local causes.

3. Local Decision Making

Local ownership means that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.

4. Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy

Your dollars spent in locally-owned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development.
