HEADLAND, Ala. (WDHN) — Alabama is gearing up for the 10th annual Severe Weather preparedness sales tax holiday weekend — a time where shoppers can stock up on severe weather items less than 60 dollars without a tax.
“We’re really excited about the fact that this weekend we get to celebrate a tax holiday on our emergency preparedness items. We have several stores such as ACE hardware, smiths true value that offers these items for our residents,” said the economic development manager of Headland, Adrienne Wilkins.
Just a few of the items residents can purchase tax-free are batteries, flashlights, weather radios, plywood, tarps, and the list goes on for emergency supplies you need so you can be weather-ready.
Wilkins says it’s a big deal for the small city to be nominated especially for those cities that are not partaking in the weekend.
“This weekend for Headland is very big for our economy and our residents and neighbors to see what headland has to offer. We may not be a big city but we do have those big city products that you are looking for when it comes to storm preparedness.
The sale will begin at midnight on Friday and last until midnight on Sunday. Wilkins says this is the perfect example that small cities like Headland love to preach which is shop local!
