Saturday Shoppers Seek Tax Free Items

Meridian, Mississippi Saturday was day two of Mississippi's tax free weekend and shoppers were eager to take advantage of the deals.

Newscenter 11 stopped by Bonita Lakes Mall on Saturday morning where we saw shoppers buying clothes, one of the main items included in the tax free weekend. Items that are $100 or less are exempt from the seven percent sales tax. Mississippi's tax free weekend ends at 11:59 p.m. Saturday.

"For our area, since every school is uniform related, that's what they're looking for," JCPenney Store Leader Lynn Roberts says. "But they're also looking for the great bargains, the extra clearance or additional percent offs, coupons that they can get as well."

Alabama sales tax holiday runs from August 2nd through August 4th.
