Ask the editor: Why are more Impacts included in McKinney’s December issue?


With the population growth and increase in the number of businesses in McKinney, our editorial team decided to expand the Impacts section (Pages 7-9).

Impacts include a variety of business news ranging from now open and coming soon to relocations, renovations, closings, new ownership and more.

Each month going forward Impacts will be found on two different page spreads with the city split on Lake Forest Drive. Businesses located east of Lake Forest will be found listed on our East Impacts page. Businesses located on Lake Forest and west of Lake Forest will be found on our West Impacts page.

To gather Impacts our team drives around the city of McKinney, pays attention to all city agenda items and looks for input from our readers. This helps us ensure we gather as many Impacts as possible across the city.

As always, please send any news or Impacts to
