A "Better Than Tax Free" Weekend

North Carolina's Simon centers offered additional savings on a tax-free weekend to kick-off the school year in style

· Back-To-School

Charlotte, NC (August 2016) -– With final days of summer at our fingertips and schools back in session, Simon decided to make the bitter transition more seamless and sweet for their North Carolina shoppers by providing them with the opportunity to stock up on all of the season's latest styles by capitalizing on a state-wide Sales Tax Holiday.

Returning for its third annual campaign, "Better Than Tax Free" offered additional savings on back-to-school fashion, accessories and seasonal must-haves. From Friday, August 5th to Sunday, August 7th, Simon partnered with participating retailers for a successful weekend at Carolina Premium Outlets, Charlotte Premium Outlets, Concord Mills and first-timer SouthPark, making the promotion a state-wide affair at Simon shopping destinations, where over 35 million media impressions were received, summing up to approximately $175,000.00 in publicity value for the promotion.

Coupled with the sale event was a Back-to-School Fashion Show as well as a Backpack Drive, both held at Carolina Premium Outlets. On Saturday, August 6th, models from the Boys and Girls Club of Selma showcased the season’s hottest trends from retailers including GAP Factory Store, Wilsons Leather, Skechers and Hot Topic. Charitable guests were able to donate backpacks and school supplies to benefit the Mom & Pop Green Org. throughout the entire weekend.
