Tax free weekend makes back to school a little easier

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Back to school has come sooner than expected for most families but relief can be found in the upcoming tax free weekend here in the state of Georgia and South Carolina.

Stores in downtown Savannah have been preparing all week for the tax free weekend starting as the month of August begins.

The owner of Go Fish in Savannah says they have been rearranging the store and putting out new merchandise all week.

Owner Debbie Ryysylainen says, "I think it also brings people in, you know locals who maybe haven't been before and there's so much going on Broughton Street at the moment as well. I think it's a really good opportunity to see what's changing and at the same time get a good deal."

One thing to keep in mind is you can't buy clothes and shoes that are more than 100 dollars and computers that are more than 1000 dollars.
