Georgia's back to school Sales Tax Holiday weekend is underway Friday and Middle Georgia shoppers are visiting retail stores to take advantage of the tax break.
The two day statewide event is not just for students, it’s designed to allow people to buy back to school items which include shoes and clothing valued at $100 or less as well as school supplies retailed at $20 or less and computers and their accessories valued at $1000 dollars or less.
“It's just to save our customers a little bit extra money,” Best Buy Connectivity Sales Manager, Nicholas Ross said. “The state of Georgia wants to save the people who are going back to school and everything a few extra bucks as well."
However the holiday isn’t just for students, every person can take advantage of it.
“I'm not in school, but it's saving me money” Shiquita Price said. “Really helps everyone."
The tax break will continue Saturday and Best Buy will remain open until 10 p.m.
