Retail Shopping Centers in Collin County

including Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano

Shopping and strip malls fill just about every corner of Collin County, so we'll share with you the major shopping centers and malls in Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano. We've also included the historic downtown areas known for their boutiques, antiques and art studios.

Outdoor Shopping Centers

These destinations are relatively new, fashioned around outdoor activities for adults and kids. Take a break from shopping and enjoy sipping a coffee on the patio or gather for a glass of wine.

Fairview Town Center
Major brands such as Dillards, JC Penney, and Macy's, along with specialty boutiques, are found on the Fairview side. We listed this mall on our discount shopping page for the Allen side, where you'll find Homegoods/TJ Maxx and Ross. Specialty stores are found on both sides of Stacy Road.

Watter's Creek
Eddie Bauer, Ann Taylor, Bath & Body Works, Sephora are just a few of the major brands. Grimaldi's pizza, The Cheesecake Factory, Brio and P.F. Changs, are some of the major eateries. The shops are located behind Market Street and built around a stream, creating a quaint village effect. A children's playground is conveniently located in the green area.

The Star District
Opened in 2018, the central focus is unmistakably the Dallas Cowboys. With the Tostitos Championship Plaza inviting kids and adults alike to toss around a football or attend a family-friendly event, multiple casual and kid-friendly dining options are available. Exclusive retail options include Dallas Cowboys (not surprisingly!), western gear, and lifestyle goods.

Shopping in Historic Downtown Districts

While each of Collin County's Main Streets offer some degree of shopping, these are the locations to head for shopping, lunch or a night out. Each of these historic shopping districts could keep you busy beginning with your morning coffee through a date on the town.

Historic Downtown McKinney
This is one of those fun shopping districts to explore. You'll find boutiques, antiques, and art--to purchase and to create. Quaint, independent restaurants and coffee houses alongside specialty markets. There are two farm-to-table restaurants.
