Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday Shopping Celebration

The Gardens Mall

August 13-15, 2010

Parents can look forward to back-to-school shopping this year, thanks to the Florida Legislature passing the Back-to-School Sales Tax Holiday. Florida now has a three-day, sales-tax holiday from August 13 through 15, on school supplies, books, clothing, and footwear. 

The Gardens Mall will be celebrating the tax-free weekend by hosting two runway fashion shows on Saturday, August 14 in the Grand Court, featuring graduates from the popular summer program, Fashion Camp at The Gardens. Beat the heat, catch up on the latest trends, and shop your favorite brands at affordable prices during the three-day tax holiday. Check out the new styles at an array of youth-oriented retailers located at The Gardens Mall: Abercrombie & Fitch, Aeropostale, American Eagle Outfitters, Express, Gap, Lucky Brand Jeans, Lacoste, Justice, True Religion Brand Jeans, and Ralph Lauren, just to name a few. Retail giants, Sears, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, and Macy’s are sure to have the hottest fashions, along with value-packed prices on clothes, accessories, and shoes.

·        August 13-15 – While supplies last, spend $250 and earn a $20 gift card from             The Gardens Mall

·        August 14 – Back-to-School Fashion Show at noon and 2 p.m. at the Grand Court

·        August 15 – Montblanc and The Gardens Mall present Maltz Jupiter Theatre performances of Academy Performances at 12:30, 2:30, and 4:30 on Sunday, August 15, and at noon on August 16.

“This tax break will enable Florida families to buy school supplies and clothing for the school year without the additional cost burden of state and local taxes,” said Sally West, director of government affairs for the Florida Retail Federation. “The tax holiday will also provide a much needed boost to Florida’s economy.”

When it comes to clothes, each item must be $50 or less to avoid paying sales tax. The list includes pants, skirts, shirts, shoes, socks, jackets, jeans, uniforms, belts, and even backpacks. The school supply list includes just about everything you need to succeed in the classroom. The catch is, to be tax free, each item must be under $10. For a complete list of tax-free items, go to .
