State sales tax free weekend begins today, local stores getting ready
4% off of entire purchase from now until Sunday
LAFAYETE (KADN) — Starting today and going throughout the weekend Louisiana citizens can save a little money because it's state sales tax free weekend. This is a four-percent deduction in cost on all purchases throughout the weekend. One place that is certainly chaotic during this time of year is uniform store School Time in Lafayette.
"School starts next week. A lot of schools are starting next week, and it's just the final if you need any little one or two things left it's a good time to buy. At this point most school uniforms do not have sales going on so it's kind of like a little incentive to come buy those extra things you need," says Lourdes Guidry, manager at School Time.
School Time prepared for the weekend by overstocking as well as extending their store hours. Tomorrow they are opening at 9 am and closing at 5 pm. They will also be open on Sunday for those who still want to purchase during the tax free weekend.
