HUB blog 8.1.15I don’t consider myself an expert at much, but if there is one thing I like to do and am fairly good at, it is finding a good deal. I like it best when it is for items I or my family must have.

So it makes me glad to let you know you can save the 9.5 percent tax on textbooks, Harding apparel and school supplies at Harding University Bookstore tomorrow.

You see, Aug. 1 is a tax-free holiday for the state of Arkansas, and the bookstore will be open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Come by and take advantage of tax-free prices on items you or your student will need to purchase in just a few weeks.

Do you live too far away or can’t come by to shop? Place your order online today or tomorrow, and the bookstore will give you the tax-free rate and hold your books and apparel until you return.

It’s always good to save but even better when it reduces your school bill for the fall.

Who doesn’t like to save money?  Here’s a way.

This coming weekend, Aug. 3-4, is Arkansas’ second tax-free weekend where retail stores will not charge sales tax on purchases of clothing and footwear priced less than one hundred dollars. In addition, there is not a dollar limit on school supplies and instructional materials, including textbooks, purchased tax free. That means shoppers pay the sticker price for clothing, accessories and school supplies. As a person who grew up in Pennsylvania where there is no sales tax on clothing, I like saving that tax money — a lot.

Even better news is that this year the Harding University Bookstore is participating Saturday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take advantage of the tax-free holiday by purchasing Harding apparel, textbooks, school supplies, art supplies and more tax free! Plus, start the school year off right by saving an additional 10 percent on most merchandise at the HUB. Some exclusions, including textbooks, apply to the 10 percent off promotion.

Now is the time to buy textbooks and stock up on Harding apparel and school supplies while you save cash. If you can’t be in Searcy, you also may shop online at
