Illinois Families Get a Break, Sears Sets the Stage

. Rod Rakic

This fresh from the, "stuff that doesn't happen all that often file..."

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn was here at our State Street store this week to sign into law the legislation to establish a "sales tax holiday" which will temporarily waive the state sales tax for back-to-school purchases.

The new law will waive the state's 5 percent sales tax for clothing and shoes that cost less than $100 from Aug. 6 to Aug. 15 of this year. "This is a tax break for ordinary working families," said Quinn, as he signed the bill on the first floor of the the Sears store right below our user experience team's 4th floor studio.

I'll love working downtown. Walking through one of our stores everyday when I come to work keeps me closer and better connected to our customers and our offerings. As a UX professional, that's worth quite a bit. Having cool stuff happen where you work is a nice bonus.
