Background: For the second year in a row, the General Assembly assumed Georgians didn’t want another tax free holiday for back-to-school. Some smart retailers think otherwise. We’re listing those shops offering consumers a break during this key shopping season.
Shop Tax Free at GoGo Saturday: “Georgia may not be having an official tax free shopping weekend this year, but don’t despair! We still want to bring you those savings you have come to expect this time of year. All items at GoGo at The Shoe Box will be tax free Sunday. Included: Athletic shoes, work shoes/boots, casual shoes/sandals and kid’s shoes (sale items also tax free).” Store hours: 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Address: 1018 Martha Berry Blvd.
Spool of Dreams goes tax free today-Sunday. Their take (via Facebook): “We think it’s SOOO lame that we’re not having a Tax Free Weekend, again. So, we decided to create one for you…..come shop with us and reap the benefits.” The sale applies to both stores, at 103 W. First St. in Rome (next to Moe’s barbecue) and at 15 E. Main St. in Cartersville.
Whistlebritches is tax free on regular-price items: Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. 206 Broad St., Rome.
