Arkansas Tech University students will be able to save on textbooks, school supplies and clothing items for the fall semester during a tax free weekend in August.

The statewide sales tax holiday is slated for August 4-5, and all retailers in the State of Arkansas will be required to waive all state and local sales taxes on clothing items, school supplies and textbooks. This marks the second year the State of Arkansas has offered a sales tax holiday.

The Arkansas Tech Bookstore will be open from 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. on Saturday, August 4, and Noon- 4 p.m. on Sunday, August 5.

In addition to no sales tax, students will be able to save an additional 5% on textbooks, 10% on school supplies, 15% on clothing items and 20% on backpacks.

The savings will also be available for students making online purchases through the Arkansas Tech Bookstore website.  The online shopping hours begin at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, August 4, and run through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, August 5.
