Can I shop online?
YES! We encourage you to shop online to promote social distancing. You can buy qualifying items online or by telephone. Shipping costs are part of the item’s total sale price so make sure to keep this total under $100 to avoid sales tax. If you decide to shop in-store, be sure to practice appropriate social distancing and don’t forget your masks!
Is Tax Free Weekend Worth It?
On average, you can save about $8 per every $100 you spend. That can really add up when buying back to school items for the kids! Make sure to shop around for coupons and other sales to increase your savings.
