Sales Tax Holiday's Last Day
Sunday was the last day to take advantage of the statewide sales tax holiday. Shoppers were out in full force looking to save while retailers were looking for a boost in sales. The holiday applies to purchases of clothing, school supplies, and accessories. This is the 1st time in 3 years consumers were able to pick up items without paying any sales tax. Inside Belk at the Oaks Mall in Gainesville, families picked up uniforms for the upcoming school year. Shoppers said no matter how small the savings, the holiday is a great reason to come out.
"It's a nice incentive to spend that little bit of extra money on the kids rather than on the taxes," said mother and Gainesville resident Hera Cole.
The Belk Store Manager Dan Mixson reported an increase in business over the weekend.
