Tax-Free Weekend in Chattanooga
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – The first day of Tax-Free weekend is bringing smiles from shoppers and merchants.
The turn-out has been better than expected in some stores.
The main group of shoppers today were trying to get their kids ready for school in a couple of weeks.
Office Depot made sure its stores were well stocked.
Store Manager Donald Key said, “We went around and gathered up a lot of clearance items from other stores–see Georgia didn’t have “Tax-free” this time. So, we’re expecting a lot of people to come up from Georgia market into the Chattanooga stores and take advantage of the Tennessee tax- free.”
Out at the mall, you could get a list of all the sale items from their webpage, www.hamiltonplace.com, before you get there.
This shopping day is a little different from others.
Key says tax-free day is his store’s Christmas in July. “Black Friday, everybody rushes in, and they’re in here at 6 o’clock. But on tax free day, it sort of grows throughout the day. ”
There are still two shopping days to go.
