TAX FREE WEEKEND: Take advantage of tax-free weekend and support your friends and neighbors by shopping local. We have great local stores that will be offering some great deals this weekend.  Do you sometimes forget some of our local options?  Leon River Mercantile, Vintage Royalty, Moos Boutique, The Shops at Southern Royalty, The Parrots Nest and the Bee Hive are locally owned shops that all offer a great selection of clothing in various sizes. For accessories, bags, backpacks and other back-to-school wants & needs, check all of those stores plus places like The Parrot and Bullspit Rustic on the square.  Trying to save on back-to-school (or just a smart shopper)? Don't forget The Boys & Girls Resale Shop!  If you haven't been in these shops in awhile, stop by. You'll be impressed with what you kind find right here in town!

Not locally owned, but also keeping your dollars in town by keeping your neighbors employed... HEB, Walmart, Bealls, Tractor Supply, & Dollar General all have some of those back-to-school necessities.
