Clothing sales tax-free Friday and Saturday!
The Carl Albert State College Poteau campus bookstore will be open on Saturday, August 6th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to accommodate students who will be moving into the dorms that day.
Terri Hardin, CASC Bookstore Manager, pointed out that the Oklahoma Tax-Free Weekend will be taking place, and therefore clothing purchased with cash, check, debit or credit cards on August 5th and 6th at the Poteau bookstore will be tax-free. The Sallisaw Bookstore will also have tax-free purchases available on Friday, however will not be open on Saturday. Hardin did point out that the tax-free opportunity will not apply if using financial aid to purchase apparel.
Hardin stated, “The tax break does not cover textbooks or supplies, but we hope being available Saturday will be helpful to CASC students as they arrive at campus. Everyone is encouraged to stop by on August 5th and 6th to take advantage of the tax-free apparel purchases, plus beat the crowd on purchasing books and school supplies.”
