McKinney on the Rise- what to look forward to in 2019

There's no doubt about it, McKinney is on the rise and it doesn't look like we're slowing down! 2018 was a year of development, with the opening of 380 Commons (the Costco shopping center), expansion of downtown McKinney and new strip centers opening on every corner. It gets me so excited thinking about all the new businesses making McKinney home! Here are a few openings we're looking forward to in 2019.
