Registers at Luke’s Take Tax Break

A worker bee at Luke’s Locker told me that the store has removed sales tax from all its registers. So whatever you buy this weekend, you’re getting it sans tax. Not a bad deal, and it certainly saves time in line. Happy spending.

    Um, Stacey? It’s called the Sales Tax Holiday. Luke’s and every single other store in the state.

    I hope that person is not in a decision-making position at the magazine.

    I heard that McDonalds will give you a break on prices if you can present a piece of paper that has a special code and picture of food on it.

    This calls for a, “Thanks, Tristan.”

    You doing anything later?

    And we totally overlooked the observation of “it certainly saves time in line.”

    I cannot tell you the number of times my sales clerk has gotten bogged down with an abacus trying to calculate 7.25%

    Thank you all for your concern regarding my mental capacity. I realize it is tax-free weekend. I was trying to point out, in perhaps a fit of runnernerdness, that all items that Luke’s carries are (were) on tax holiday. That means your GU and Endurox and $100-plus items got the tax-free treatment. Not just the stuff on the the list. Thas all, folks.

    OK, no more questions about your brain power. But, jeez, Stacey, please do a spell check before posting. (Second-to-last sentence: double “the.” Last sentence: “thas” instead of “that’s.”)
