It’s here…The Texas Tax free weekend–Friday August 9-Sunday August 11th. So this means one of two things for ALL Texans.
1) they will shop and enjoy the discount of having no sales tax (not all items are eligible)
2) they will avoid ANY and all shopping areas.
It can be quite over whelming. It’s not as bad as black Friday but the crowds can definitely affect your day.
Today, I popped into a local office supply store to get some ink. On a normal day this is an in and out situation at 11:30 in the morning. Not for day 1 of the tax free weekend. I had to dodge shopping carts, unattended children, lost parents, sales people galore and then their was the line at the register. There is never a line at the register on a “normal day”.
So until stores close on Sunday evening, be aware, be very aware IT’S TEXAS TAX FREE WEEKEND and next up……
