QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

You can get some back-to-school shopping done this weekend in Quincy without any sales tax.

The District will be holding a tax-free event Saturday. The event is part of its shop local Saturdays.

Executive Director Bruce Guthrie said events like these help generate revenue for small businesses. He also said it's a chance for families to save some money and enjoy everything downtown Quincy has to offer.

"It coincides with going back to school and being able to give everyone a chance to save money and enjoy the beautiful downtown," Guthrie said. "So you can come on downtown Saturday and shop at over twenty designated stores and save money by going tax free."

You can find what stores are taking part in the tax free event here.
