Dixie’s Store

Shop at Dixie’s Store for Unique Gifts for All Ages!

Built in 1918, Dixie’s Store was moved to Chestnut Square in 1996. This building has a soft spot in the hearts of many of McKinney’s former school children. Dixie would give soft drinks or candy to local children who brought a straight “A” report card to her attention. She would also paddle those who acted up in her store…and record their names on the store paddle! Today, Dixie’s Store serves as a memory of a simpler shopping time and a gift store for Chestnut Square.

Dixie’s Store offers home crafted items and fun toys that take children back to simpler play. We also stock local history books and photos. During the Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from April through October, Dixie’s store will offer cold drinks and the winning Kellis Melton Crank Off Ice Cream flavor.
