TAKE THE McKINNEY FIRST 5% PLEDGE
Buy Local – McKinney First! is a local economic development initiative of the McKinney Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the McKinney Community Development Corporation and the City of McKinney. The program’s goal is to strengthen our local economy through increased business-to-business purchasing. If every business in McKinney shifted just 5% of their out-of-area spending, the change would result in more than $100 million for our community.
Imagine the power of that money re-circulating in our community … new jobs, business expansion, improved public services, streets, parks and schools and new startup businesses based on locally identified needs. Take a few minutes to evaluate your organization’s spending, and let us help you find ways to make a change. Just 5% makes a difference!
