NC shopping mall offers its own tax relief in the absence of tax-free weekend
CONCORD, N.C. — A North Carolina shopping mall is offering its own form of tax relief this weekend now that state lawmakers have ended tax-free weekend.
WSOC-TV reported that Concord Mills in Concord is offering “Better Than Tax Free” savings at many of its more than 200 stores.
The participating stores include Books-A-Million, The Disney Store Outlet, HANESbrand, J. Crew Factory, Oshkosh B’Gosh Outlet, Sketchers USA Outlet, Wilson’s Leather and more.
This first sales event is part of Concord Mills’ Summer of Savings promotion. It will reportedly offer shoppers added value on back-to-school shopping with an additional 10 percent off already discounted merchandise.

North Carolina lawmakers eliminated tax-free weekend last year in the tax reform bill, saying it cost the state more than $13 million in lost revenue.
