Tennessee's tax-free weekend kicks off tomorrow
Tax-free weekend is nearly here and stores across Northeast Tennessee are preparing for back-to-school shopping.
"The tax-free holiday for the state of Tennessee is Friday, Saturday and Sunday," said Academy Sales Manager, Jeremy Mays. "We are going to have lots of great deals for that. Footwear and apparel as well as our backpacks which we have a great selection."
Academy Sports and Outdoor has deals on most items.
The discounts include uniforms and sports gear for all ages.
One mother brought her three children to academy to stock up on school supplies.
"We are checking out all the sales," said Felicia Craien. "We are trying to get everything stocked up for what we need to start out with school and get what we may need later on in the school year."
From school supplies to apparel, parents can enjoy deals and discounts during the upcoming tax-free weekend
"In Virginia, this is the closest place that we have to come," said school teacher, Danielle Aistrob. "So it’s like an hour away but the best place to come as far as getting all the materials."
This weekend isn't just for parents, it's for teachers as well.
Aistrob will travel between states to take advantage of the tax-free weekend in Tennessee.
She shops at A2Z School Supplies for her materials.
"There are things that are offered on the tax-free weekend. Of course we offer that tax-free to anybody that comes in," said A2Z Owner, Carla Smith. "The teachers that come in that are using purchase orders and things like that from the schools all of that is tax-free anyway."
