Back-to-School Shopping is Always Tax-Free at MERS/Goodwill - Save Time and Money with One-Stop Back-to-School Shopping at MERS/Goodwill.

Tax-Free Weekend (August 6-8, 2010 in Missouri) may only come once a year at the mall, but MERS/Goodwill is always tax-free and this year every student's back-to-school needs can be met at prices perfect for any parent's budget. Whether it's clothing, backpacks, dorm room furnishings or school supplies, MERS/Goodwill offers parents and their students an easy alternative to crowded stores and malls with more than 40 retail locations in the bi-state area.

"MERS/Goodwill can outfit everyone from pre-school to college for a stylish return to school," said Dr. Lewis Chartock, President and CEO of MERS/Goodwill. "Our customers find great savings on everything from gently used uniforms and athletic shoes to backpacks and lunch bags. If your children recently graduated earlier in the year, recycle and donate those un-used school items to your local Goodwill."

For older students looking to move out of their parent's home and into a dorm room or first apartment, MERS/Goodwill offers everything they need to create a home away from home, including mattresses, furniture, small appliances and kitchen utensils. Each of MERS/Goodwill's 40 retail locations offers something different, but for back-to-school, customers can expect to find discounted items for any student's needs.

Recycle and donate back-to-school items at any Goodwill location or drop-off site and make them available to the community at affordable prices. These donations will not only provide a fun and easy back-to-school shopping experience for families in the neighborhood, but they also help provide opportunities for people in the community through MERS/Goodwill's job skills and career training programs.
