Shopping in Louisiana

Tax Free Shopping in Louisiana 

Did you know Louisiana was the first state in the U.S. to offer sales tax refunds to international visitors? This means a shopping paradise for foreign visitors who will find nearly 900 tax free stores. Louisiana has six refund centres making it easy to receive a cash refund instantaneously. This is not to be confused with duty free shops at international departure terminals with limited inventory. Louisiana Tax Free Shopping includes Macy’s, Best Buy, Gucci, The Gap, Coach and many more outlets, antique shops, jewellery and department stores. 

Whatever your style, Baton Rouge is always an unforgettable shopping experience with options like the Mall of Louisiana, Perkins Rowe, Tanger Outlets and the antique district. You can even find a unique gift at one of the craft tents at the many year-round festivals or eclectic boutiques located throughout the Capital City. If you are spending a day shopping in Baton Rouge start at the Mall of Louisiana, an impressive mall with 175 retail stores, and don't forget to visit the refund centre to claim the sales tax back. When you're done at the mall, head over to another must-see shopping spot, Perkins Rowe - a unique residential and upscale shopping village. For a relaxed and charming open-air marketplace, head to Towne Centre at Cedar Lodge. Antique lovers will enjoy a mix of new and old treasures with antiques, original art and architectural salvage from around the world at Baton Rouge's many antique hot spots like Circa 1857. End your day at the Tanger Outlet Mall where you'll find over 60 brand name outlets.
