At first glimpse, the story that reportssales tax at the Park Meadows shopping center might increase probably sounds pretty disheartening to shoppers. It’s already pretty expensive to shop at Park Meadows as it is, since shoppers seem willing to pay a premium to shop at the massive mall. However, there needs to be a little perspective given here. The story reports that hike would “raise the current tax from 4 percent to 4.6 percent.”
4.6 percent sales tax is still a bargain in the metro area. Most of the other major malls have to charge much more than 4.6%.
