Fairfield small businesses hope Tax Free Week provides much-needed sale boosts

Small businesses in Fairfield hope Tax Free Week will be a help as they try to recover from the impact of the pandemic.
During Tax Free Week, customers won’t have to pay sales tax on most clothes and shoes under $100 – a win for families getting their back-to-school shopping done.
Apricot Lane Boutique is participating in the week-long tax-free event.
“We have been promoting Tax Free Week on all accounts of social media and on our website as well, and thankfully we've had a pretty good turnout throughout the week,” says Apricot Lane Boutique manager Stephanie Valdovinos.
The manager at Capri tell News 12 their customers are taking advantage of the week, too.
"Some of our customers know and that's why they come in and others are delighted to hear the news from us,” says Capri manager Sharon Risley.
Tax Free Week runs through Aug. 21.
