Each week, through the technology of my handy FLIP video camera, I will do a short interview with a different small business owner in or around McKinney.
In 1954 Ronnie Thomason and his parents moved to McKinney from West Texas. His father started a little tire business on Tennessee St. and almost 58 years later, Thomason Tires is still a successful family-run business despite a vastly evolving competitive landscape.
If you think you have a story to tell send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me why you should be the focus of Stuart J.’s Lens.
Here are some of the rules:
● Your business does not need to be an advertiser on TownSquareBuzz.com. (Although if you are reading this, you can already appreciate that TSB is the place to go to reach thousands of people like yourself who are interested in the goings-on in McKinney.)
● The objective is to be serious about small business in and around McKinney but in a fun way. If not full of personality, (fun, charming, quirky….), you will not make the cut. (Note: I stole that line from “Chopped”!)
● This personality could stem from what drove you to a particular business, what your strangest/funniest business experience has been or what we “really need to know” that we probably would not have guessed. Boring, staid, “we make widgets and want people to come buy those widgets” stories will not be featured.
● Did I mention you don’t have to pay to play? The cost of entry is simply a story the folks in McKinney would enjoy hearing.
