Shop and save during sales tax holiday

in Community by

South Carolina’s annual sales-tax free weekend will take place Friday, August 5 through Sunday, August 7.
The event is traditionally meant to help parents with back-to-school shopping.
During the tax-free holiday, stock up on items such as clothing, accessories, footwear, school supplies, computers and computer equipment. The regular sales-tax rate is 6%, so that’s how much you’ll save.
In conjunction with the state’s tax-free weekend and the beginning of school, local Verizon Wireless, Gap Outlet and Banana Republic Factory Stores will be doubling as collection sites for donated school supplies. These businesses will give the donated school supplies to children who attend the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry.
