The president of the Alabama Retail Association, Rick Brown, says the state's retail sales have been recovering slowly from the recession, and the sales tax holiday should provide more momentum.

The state is waiving its 4 percent sales tax for the three-day holiday, and 265 cities and counties are also participating.

Brown says the sales tax holiday applies to everyone, not just those buying back-to-school items.

The holiday covers clothing priced at $100 or less, school supplies valued at $50 or less, books costing $30 or less, and computers and computer equipment selling for $750 or less.
