Cheaper Than Dirt! Opens New Location in McKinney, Texas

Fort Worth based internet retailer Cheaper Than Dirt! has just announced the grand opening of a brand new retail store in the North Texas suburb of McKinney, located at 2058 West University Drive, just off of Highway 380 and US-75. The new store will offer a selection of firearms, ammunition, and hunting and shooting accessories.

Centrally located in the Towne Crossing shopping center, the new store “Cheaper Than Dirt Guns! shares space with various other establishments including a Super Target, Lowes Home Improvement Center, and a Buffalo Wild Wings. Dominating the view upon entering the store are two long walls with literally hundreds of shotguns and rifles which hang on display, awaiting eager buyers. From Colt AR-15 rifles to Mossberg 500 and M590A1 shotguns, to semiautomatic AK-47 variants, the selection is truly massive. A cornerstone of the store is, of course, “Ammo Alley.” Here customers can browse nearly 50 different brands of shotgun, rifle, and pistol ammunition.

The grand opening will run August 12th through the 15th with many items marked as low as possible. Smith & Wesson M&P 15 rifles start at just $799.95, Ruger LCP .380 pistols can be found for just $299.95, and Maverick 88 pump action shotguns are priced at a very affordable $189.95. In addition to these great deals, the first 3,000 customers to be rung up at a register will receive a free TexSport water bottle and drawings for free merchandise will be held throughout the grand opening.

Customers who wish to trade in older firearms will be able to sell their gently used pistol, rifle, or shotgun at the McKinney store location.

According to local residents, the store is a welcome addition to the area which, despite the failing economy nationwide, has seen robust growth. The North Texas area, McKinney in particular, as been largely unaffected by the nationwide recession. Area home prices have remained steady, and the entire four county area has seen continued strong population growth.

Since the presidential elections of 2008, gun and ammunition sales have skyrocketed nationwide. For a short time, AR-15 and semiautomatic AK-47 rifles, along with many other variants and nearly all calibers of ammunition, were nearly impossible to find as thousands scrambled to purchase what they could in anticipation of the election results. Since then, consumer demand has returned to normal, allowing manufacturers and retailers time to restock shelves. No where is this more evident than at Cheaper Than Dirt GUNS! in McKinney where they literally thousands of firearms available for immediate purchase by qualified buyers.

When pressed for more information about the new location, Cheaper Than Dirt CEO Michael Tenny said only “We’re very excited to see the new store opening, and hope to have more locations open in the future.”

Store hours are Monday-Saturday 10am-8pm and Sunday from 12 Noon until 6pm.
