Iowa Shoppers Ready for Tax Free Weekend

July 23rd, 2018 — Goodwill reminds back-to-school shoppers heading to the stores for the upcoming tax-free holiday, August 3rd and 4th, that shopping Goodwill locations in Iowa is always tax-free.  Since Goodwill of the Heartland is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization, customers do not pay sales tax when shopping its Iowa stores.

 

“We offer great value, one-of-kind finds and tax-free shopping year-round,’” said Mindy Kayser, Vice President of Marketing for Goodwill of the Heartland.  “We encourage people to add Goodwill to their list of shopping stops this back-to-school season and to remember our stores throughout the year for all their family and household needs.”

 

When back-to-school shoppers support Goodwill, they are getting great deals on clothing, shoes and other back-to-school gear.  They are also making a positive impact in their local communities by creating jobs and other opportunities for people with barriers to independence.

 

Goodwill also offers a solution on what to do with those things your kids no longer want, need or that they’ve outgrown.  Kayser said, “Our stores depend on donated goods. Not only is Goodwill a great shopping destination, it’s also a convenient place to donate.  In doing so, you give new life to your old things and assist in stocking our stores while also helping other children get off to a great start this school year.”

 

Kayser added, “Also consider Goodwill if you’re a college student looking to furnish a dorm room or apartment on a budget.  Goodwill has a great selection of used furniture, kitchenware and other household items.  Your dollars will definitely go farther at Goodwill.”
