Oklahoma’s sales tax holiday is coming up this weekend and it’s a perfect time to support local retail establishments.
Since 2007 the state sales tax holiday has enabled shoppers to buy clothing and shoes without paying sales tax, as long as the items cost less than $100.
Last year Oklahoma shoppers saved around $6.8 million during the three-day holiday.
Total consumer savings since the inception of the holiday is around $19.8 billion according to the Oklahoma Tax Commission.
Grove shoppers may take advantage of the savings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 6, 7 and 8.
Local merchants are preparing for the holiday with added incentives and extra sales.
Some retailers have compared the holiday’s revenues and customer volume to the day after Thanksgiving, which is traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year.
