August might not have reared its head just yet, and September seems eons away, but really, if you’ve checked the flyers and your email alerts from local retailers, it’s back to school shopping time. Before you know it, Connecticut’s annual sales tax free week for clothing will be upon us. This year, it runs from Aug. 17 to 23. All clothing and shoes that are less than $300 are exempt from Connecticut sales tax that week. The Princess Vera Vera Wang collection at Kohl’s on New Britain Avenue in Plainville has a variety of back-to-school worthy items, all at less than $100, which means they will be tax-free that week Madison Yurgaitis of Southington models some of the items available.
