WACO -- Everyone loves a great deal, and thanks to the upcoming tax-free weekend, stores are packing on the savings.
"This is just another added benefit the way the economy is for people to take advantage of some lower prices," HEB General Manager Leader Kristy Goldenberg said.
But with great deals, comes even greater lines.
"Definitely traffic flow will be a lot busier, we've already stacked up to keep the isles full because that's an ongoing process. And just got a big shipment from the warehouse to make sure we're able to meet the demands of the costumer's because it is going to be very, very busy this weekend," Goldenberg said.
From school supplies, backpacks and clothes, all items under 100 dollars are tax free, including layaway items.
This means for every 100 dollars you spend, you'll save 8.
One of the best parts about tax free weekend is it's just in time for back to school. So you can get all the items you needed but for a few dollars less.
"A lot of us, you know, we're busy parents, we're busy employees as well and it's just a lot of us tend to wait to the very last minute to get stuff. But, you know, keep in mind that with the timing comes some great benefits," Goldenberg said.
