The school year is drawing closer and so is the annual tax free weekend.
Tax free weekend in Oklahoma will be Aug. 3-5 and applies to clothing and shoes.
The Guthrie Chamber of Commerce is reminding parents to first #ChooseGuthrie with all their shopping with local stores.
The tax free weekend, which has been ongoing since 2007 for Oklahoma, is intended to coincide with back-to-school shopping.
The weekend sale will begin at 12:01 a.m. August 3, and ends at midnight on August 5.
You can purchase an unlimited number of qualifying tax-free items during this time.
