Here Are 10 Cities Participating In Missouri’s Tax-Free Weekend That You’ll Want To Visit

Missouri state law gives families a sales tax holiday the first weekend in August. This weekend, you can hit the stores to take advantage of the tax break on back-to-school purchases, such as clothing, school supplies, computers, and other items as defined by the statute. However, the Missouri Department of Revenue code states, “local jurisdictions can choose to not participate in the holiday if they enact an ordinance to not participate and notify the department 45 days prior to the sales tax holiday.” So, to ensure you’re getting the tax break, here are some of the cities that are participating in the tax-free weekend in Missouri.

What is the largest shopping mall in Missouri?

The largest shopping mall in Missouri was the Northwest Plaza Mall built in 1965. At the time it was the biggest mall in the World. At its peak, it had more than 210 stores located in the 1.9 million-square-foot building. At its closing in 2010, it was the 27th largest mall in the United States.

The Crossings at Northwest, sprung from the ashes of the Northwest Plaza Mall in 2012 when much of the former mall was demolished. The Crossings at Northwest is a mixed-use development with about 400,000 square feet of retail space and 500,000 square feet of office space. It is now made up of big box stores, restaurants, a grocery store, and a number of smaller stores.
