Shopping without having to pay tax is a nice benefit, I am sure that people will enjoy that in doing their back to school shopping.

Kim, Thanks for reminder as we have our sales tax holiday coming up in the near future. I need to research the dates. Sales tax holiday works so well with the approaching school year and purchases made so children can attend school.
