Gear up for the upcoming school year by heading to locals stores and malls to get all the items you need for school tax free. From clothing and backpacks for kids still in school, to dorm room bedding and stationary for college kids, there are tons of fantastic tax free deals going on from August 5-7, 2016 in the Myrtle Beach area.
