Ribbon-cuttings: They're nothing new to chambers of commerce, particularly ones in growing cities.
It's certainly no different in McKinney, where the McKinney Chamber of Commerce holds near-weekly ceremonies welcoming a new business or service to the community.
Two recent examples: Sears Maid Services and Empire Fitness.
The McKinney Chamber held a ribbon-cutting for each Thursday at the Chamber's office.
Sears Maid Services is a cleaning service for one's home or office. Representatives with the business vow, "Our crews are professionally trained by Sears, background checked, bonded and insured."
