If I were a store in Woodstock, I’d want the city to point out that the sales tax is 75/100 of a percent cheaper in Woodstock than in Crystal Lake.
That’s why I sometimes go to the Walmart in Woodstock, rather than in Crystal Lake.
When I saw the South Elementary School janitor there one day, I asked him why he wasn’t shopping in Crystal Lake.
The reply was that the sales tax was cheaper in Woodstock.
That makes me wonder why Woodstock does not play up this difference in taxation.
