Local Businesses, Sales for Tax-Free Weekend?
Do you own a local business and want to announce sales for this weekend?
Gov. Deval Patrick has signed a bill that designates Aug. 11 and 12 as a sales tax holiday, meaning shoppers won't have to pay the state's 6.25 percent sales tax.
We at Patch love local business and shopping locally. So we're asking local businesses to post here about deals they may be offering this weekend.
For example, Ciao! Bow Wow is offering the following deals, according to store owner Melanie LaRocca:
"So Mame & Maude insisted that we put our best-selling brand, Taste of The
Wild on sale. We call it The 1-2-3 sale. Stock up on the 30# bags and save
up to $3 per bag. All the Douglas Paquette collars and leashes are on sale. Every dog can use a new collar, even if you already have a closet full of them (like Mame & Maude). Matching leashes are a nice touch. If you are even thinking about a crate, pet gate or portable crate for you pets, now is the time to buy one. We have low prices to begin with, we put everything on sale and now you can save the 6.2% sales tax. We have $3 coupons on Primal Freeze Dried Formulas for cats and dogs. The net price is $18.99 per 14 oz bag. This is a great deal. Stop in anyway for a free snack for the dogs and cats if you are in the area."
So local business owners, leave a comment below and tell us what you're offering customers this tax-free weekend!
