Who doesn’t like to save money? Here’s a way.
This coming weekend, Aug. 3-4, is Arkansas’ second tax-free weekend where retail stores will not charge sales tax on purchases of clothing and footwear priced less than one hundred dollars. In addition, there is not a dollar limit on school supplies and instructional materials, including textbooks, purchased tax free. That means shoppers pay the sticker price for clothing, accessories and school supplies. As a person who grew up in Pennsylvania where there is no sales tax on clothing, I like saving that tax money — a lot.
Even better news is that this year the Harding University Bookstore is participating Saturday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take advantage of the tax-free holiday by purchasing Harding apparel, textbooks, school supplies, art supplies and more tax free! Plus, start the school year off right by saving an additional 10 percent on most merchandise at the HUB. Some exclusions, including textbooks, apply to the 10 percent off promotion.
Now is the time to buy textbooks and stock up on Harding apparel and school supplies while you save cash. If you can’t be in Searcy, you also may shop online at hubookstore.harding.edu.
