Shoe Station is making its own Louisiana Sales Tax Holiday Friday, August 3. The one-day promotional event comes on the heels of news that the Louisiana State Legislature is not renewing the popular holiday for upcoming years. The chain will cover state and local sales taxes for its Louisiana customers.

Shoe Station has two locations in Baton Rouge and one in Lafayette. The retail chain has 21 stores overall in five states. 


"Taxes add up, and our fans in Louisiana can enjoy fashion knowing that we are helping to 'foot' the bill," President and CEO Brent Barkin said. 

The limited-time promotion is in-store only and applies to shoes only.

"This Friday will be extraordinary because we are covering your tax on shoes, including luxury lines that are rarely discounted," Barkin stated. 

Brands sold at Shoe Station include: Alegria, Birkenstock, Bull Boxer, Bussola, Chaco, ColeHaan, Hey Dude, Nike, OTBT, Reiker, Sperry, Taos, Toms, Under Armour, and Vionic.
