This weekend only, the State of Texas is exempting sales and use taxes on most clothes and shoes that cost less than one hundred dollars.

Valley Vista in Harlingen is one of the malls participating in the tax free weekend from Friday Aug. 9 to Aug. 11.

Stores like Forever21, Journey’s and Aeropostale are some of the businesses participating in tax free weekend.

Assistant Marketing Director for Valle Vista Mall Osmara Perez said there will be other benefits for customers who arrive early at Valley Vista Mall.

“The first 100 shoppers that visit the Forever21 court will receive a tote bag along with some coupons and samples from our retailers, along with coffee services,” Perez said. “On Saturday, we will be having a kid’s event and giving backpacks away to our members.”

Tax free weekend are one of the mall’s busiest days of the year, so if you’re planning on shopping this weekend, you can expect more mall traffic.
