Many other malls or shopping centers or retailers may offer tax-free specials. Just because something isn’t listed above doesn’t mean there’s not an opportunity for a tax-free special near you. Check your local mall or shopping center to see if they’re offering a special for tax-free weekend. But remember, just because a store or restaurant offered a special last year doesn’t mean they will do the same this year. In previous years, Chipotle has offered specials and freebies on tax-free weekend, but it doesn’t appear to be doing the same this year. So if you’re unsure, just give your local store a call. Or shop online and try one of the specials we have listed above, because those should be working this weekend.
