In addition to the state-provided tax savings, Bealls will offer special discounts, including Beall Ringer pricing on back to school essentials throughout the store.

“We understand that parents are stretched financially, and they need to maximize their back-to-school budget. But, they also want their kids to be comfortable and confident in the clothes they wear to school,” said Lorna Nagler, President of Bealls Department Stores. “We’re making it possible for parents to get what their kids want and need at a great price.”
Bealls carries a complete line of the most popular national brands for back to school, such as Levi’s, Nike, Converse and Jansport. Plus, they cater specifically to Florida with brands like Salt Life, Guy Harvey, Hurley, and huge Florida collegiate team shops.
During the Florida Sales Tax Holiday, the state of Florida has specified that clothing, footwear and certain accessories must be $75 or less to be exempt from Florida state and local taxes. Bealls Department Stores has gone the extra step to ensure that every item within these categories at their store is under $75.
Bealls Tax Free Days celebration event starts Friday at 7am, with extended shopping hours throughout the weekend. Friday and Saturday hours are 7am to 11pm and Sunday hours are 9am to 10pm.
