Shop During Tax Free Days Friday-Sunday At Hamilton Place

Monday, July 29, 2013

Shoppers at Hamilton Place will once again enjoy a tax-free holiday this year.  The tax free holiday runs Friday–Sunday. The state of Tennessee will provide exemptions on most clothing, footwear and school supplies priced under $100 from sales and use taxes. Computers priced at $1,500 or less are also tax free. 

“This is a great opportunity for shoppers to take advantage and save even more while they shop for back to school essentials at over 200 stores," said Dana Katterjohn, regional marketing director for CBL & Associates Properties.  "Many stores, including MacAuthority, Aeropostale, Shoe Department and the newly opened Maurices plan to hold sales in addition to the tax holiday over the weekend.”  

Hamilton Place stores will extend hours during the tax free weekend.  On Friday and Saturday, mall stores will be open from 9 a.m.–10 p.m. and on Sunday mall stores will be open from 11 a.m.–7 p.m.  Department store and restaurant hours may vary.
