Tax Free Weekend Begins In Longview

Saving a buck, or two- that was the focus of many shoppers today as the much-anticipated tax-free weekend is underway.

Shoppers were out in full force in Longview, picking up selected items without paying sales taxes. Kids clothing and school supplies were quickly disappearing from shelves. And, to sweeten the deal, the sales-tax break will also apply to lay-away items. For many families, it's a way to stretch an already tight budget.

"They usually always have a deal somewhere. We went to the mall and got a pair of shoes and got another pair half-off, and then the tax off. I think it's the best weekend to get the shoes always wait 'til this weekend," said shopper Lisa Durham.
