    Yep every year for I don't know how many years now they have at sales tax free weekend on certain items deemed school worthy. However, this years list is beyond me in that it is way more than school supplies and clothes lol

    everything in our store (ccity) is considered -sales- tax free except for tv's and it has to have a price of 750 or lower

    I think we already had ours, but I am not sure.. Luckily I do not work anywhere that would be affected by it, but when I did I sometimes wanted to pull my hair out.

    I lied ours was this past weekend.... Ugh! I gave up on shopping.. I swear! I had to go in Wal-mart and geez... It was horrible. I was wondering why there were about 8 times the amount of people there than there would normally be on a weekend.

    We have one in a few weeks. I don't see a huge deal anyways. I guess it's important if you're buying big expensive stuff like appliances.
