Maryland & Charm City Run are Tax-Free for Back to School

Monday, August 15, 2016

Although each day feels as though it is more humid than the next, the summer season is coming to a close as sand-filled vans return home from vacations and school emails start to make an appearance in inboxes once again. Fortunately, Maryland’s tax-free week makes preparations for back to school a little sweeter.

From Sunday, Aug. 14 to Saturday, Aug. 20, the great state of Maryland provides a week of tax-free shopping on qualifying apparel and footwear items $100 or less (Check out the complete list here). In addition, Charm City Run and VITA are covering the tax on apparel and footwear priced more than $100 and ALL accessories, which are not included in the tax-free week.

This is a great week to replace those worn-out Asics and grab that new Charm City Run logo tank you’ve been eyeing.  Plus, for the kids, we carry Brooks, Saucony and Under Armour running shoes as well as Nike, New Balance, Saucony and Under Armour cross country spikes. We hope you enjoy stocking up on everything you need while saving a little at the register. We look forward to seeing you this week!
