It’s tax free weekend throughout the state of Iowa, and many parents utilize this program to save on their back to school shopping. Karen Eischen, Executive Director of the Pella Chamber of Commerce, reminds listeners that if you shop local, you help small businesses thrive and keep employment opportunities in the area. She adds that along with money, shopping locally allows you to save time, which is often more valuable than any discount. Tax free weekend started today and concludes tomorrow at midnight.
