Texas Is Tax Free All Weekend

        The tax free holiday begins today and will continue until Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. Shoppers can save about eight dollars on every 100 dollars they spend.

“But I think the additional 8.25% that people are saving really brings them out shopping,” said Sales Associate, Belle Morgan.

Amy Davis, Soft Lines Manager at Academy, agrees that this is the weekend to shop.

“I mean everybody wants to save every little bit they can,” said Davis. “Why not come out and save a little bit especially all you have to get for your kids.”

The extra savings has business getting ready for the rush.

“We're not normally open on Saturday but we're going to be open from ten to six this Saturday,” said Morgan.

One sales associate believes with added savings comes a busier shopping season.

“Just be patient we're trying to help everybody,” said Davis. “We really enjoy it. We like to see big crowds coming out and helping our customers.”

Any retail stores that do business in Texas and sell qualifying products are asked to comply with the law and participate in the event.

All products have to be under $100 in order to qualify being tax free.

“It's like shoes, they can't get shoes over $100 tax free,” said Davis.

So if you're looking to save a little money this weekend, tax free Texas is here for the weekend.
