Make back to school shopping easy and fun this year with a Back 2 School event at Destin Commons from 1 to 5 p.m. Aug. 4. While shoppers take advantage of Florida sales tax-free days, families can enjoy free face painting and a photo booth, compliments of Stub’s Orthodontics, and other exciting entertainment.

The annual Florida Sales Tax-free Holiday will be Aug. 3 through 5, with tax-free shopping on purchases such as clothing, footwear and certain accessories under $60 per item, as well as certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item. Visit the customer service kiosk for complete details on tax-free items.

“This is the perfect time to take care of all the family’s back to school shopping needs,” said Destin Commons senior director of marketing and leasing Heather Ruiz. “Destin Commons will be offering great sales throughout the center, and then to eliminate the Florida sales tax on top of that, it’s a win-win.”
