Governor John Lynch took to the new outlet mall in Merrimack today to promote New Hampshire’s lack of a sales tax.

Governor Lynch’s visit comes as Massachusetts is about to have a two day reprieve from its 6.25 percent sales tax.

Lynch praised state retailers for doing a good job promoting New Hampshire’s lack of a sales tax and stressed that retail sales are critical to the state’s economy.
