FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 3, 2013
You already know you have to make your way to Louisiana. The French Quarter’s been on your too-see list since you booked your flight to America, and you wouldn’t think of missing the plantation tours – but are you about to miss out on some of the most fun discount shopping America has to offer?
The first tax free shopping program for international visitors to the US is still the most hassle-free and the most unique. Louisiana’s tax free shopping program has been operating since 1989 and it’s no wonder why it’s been so successful. Where else in the world can you buy an alligator head and a Coach bag to carry it home in in side-by-side shops?
Louisiana’s one-of-a-kind flavor is world renowned, and it’s not limited to our famous gumbo and etoufee! We’re the only state in the nation where you can purchase an authentic voodoo doll then cross the street and get that iPad you’ve been promising yourself. And when you do, just bring your ID, save your receipt and stop into one of the six refund centers conveniently located throughout the state and get your tax refund in cash right then and there.
Our tax refund centers aren’t to be confused with the duty-free shops you’ll find at any international airport. Oh no – you’ll find a whole lot more than discount liquor and the same old souvenirs. More than 900 shops participate in our tax free shopping program, each one with that special Louisiana spirit you simply can’t find anywhere else. From the bayou to Bourbon street, from gift shops for the folks back home to fashion and accessories you’ll be showing off on the rest of your American adventure, Louisiana tax free shopping is as much a journey as it is a destination.
Make sure you don’t miss out on your ideal Louisiana shopping experience. Go to louisianataxfree.com and explore the directory of tax free shops to make your must-visit list. Don’t forget to ask your family back home what they want – or they may end up with a voodoo doll that looks like you.
