PRLog - Oct. 11, 2012 - A unique place just opened up in downtown McKinney--a place where your purchases can be powerful.

Fair & Square Imports is the first Fair Trade retail store in North Dallas. All of its products are fair trade and are from around 30 different developing countries. At Fair & Square Imports, every item is unique, handmade, & positively impacts our world.

Fair trade is a system that not only aims to pay fair wages, but also ensures:
     > Safe working conditions
     > No child exploitation
     > Environmentally friendly
     > Equal opportunity for women
     > Community investment
     > Honest & long-term relationships
     > Pre-purchases and prompt payments

Fair Trade is about empowering some of the most marginalized people break free from cycles of dependency and poverty. Fair Trade seeks to use the free-market, global trade, and entrepreneurship to actively provide opportunity to many around the world.

Fair & Square Imports is dedicated to helping eradicate poverty through purchasing only from small-scale artisans, co-ops, non-profits, and farmers throughout the developing regions of the world. By making their handicrafts and goods available to new markets like McKinney, it helps create economic opportunity so these artisans and farmers can support their families and themselves.

"We're so excited to bring fair trade to McKinney and the surrounding area. We've already met so many shoppers that are excited and passionate about our mission," said owner & store manager, Andrew Jones. "It's so wonderful to promote something that we truly believe in and know is making a positive impact in our world. We're proud of where our products come from and want to share the amazing success stories associated with every item we sell," said owner & marketing director, Kate Jones.

Fair & Square Imports carries home goods, decor, jewelry, coffee, accessories, gifts, cultural treasures, and much more--all fair trade.

Fair & Square Imports is located at 219 E. Louisiana Street, McKinney, Texas. Its special opening hours are Monday-Thursday 10 am - 6 pm, Friday-Saturday 10 am - 8 pm, and Sunday 12 pm - 5 pm.
