In no time we will see buses running and school zone signs flashing in Deep East Texas. There are so many little things that have to be done quickly before school starts.

Nacogdoches starts back to school on Monday, August 22nd, 2022 and Lufkin starts a bit earlier on Wednesday, August 10th, 2022. Some school districts across the state started back this week, but luckily we have a little time to take advantage of tax-free weekend before classes get underway.

Since you are already saving the tax, this would be a great time to shop locally. Shopping local has many benefits for you and the community.

Shopping Local Is All About Community And Connections In Deep East Texas

Stopping by your local retailers in the twin cities’ bustling downtown areas or stand-alone shops is a much better experience than hitting the big box chains. You get to meet the people behind the products and purchase unique items that not everyone has.

Showing up to school not wearing the exact same shirt as three other people is always a win. You can even find school uniforms, and you might even save some money.

Baseball caps, baby bibs, aprons, and sandals are just some of the items you could shop locally for and save the tax on even if you aren't in school anymore. Check out the full list of qualifying items under $100 from the Texas Comptroller.
