I don’t think I know anyone who likes paying taxes. When you own a small business, it seems like all you ever do is pay taxes. That’s why the Virginia Sales Tax Holiday is fast becoming one of my favorites. It started to help folks with back to school shopping… and this year back to school shopping has a different meaning altogether.
Many of the stores in Alexandria Stylebook have decided once again to sweeten the deal and pay sales tax on every purchase – so you won’t pay sales tax on anything, not just on the state-approved list of items. That is right – the price on the item is what you pay.
I look at this holiday two ways. First, tons of items will be marked under $100 since clothing and shoes qualify for the state tax exemption. There are fantastic deals to be found.
The other great deal is there could be a brand-new item over $100 that just arrived that you don’t have to pay tax on, so it is a six percent discount. I mean, hey, every little bit counts!
We decided to highlight some of our deals under $100, along with some of our favorite new arrivals.
Come see us – the tents will be outside and the air conditioner will be on inside!
