Shoppers looking for deals before tax holiday

July 29, 2003

Albany-- Stores are preparing for the rush on pens, spirals and erasers. K-Mart workers are keeping their shelves stocked with school supplies in anticipation for the sales tax holiday.

Shopper Lata Phadtara is scouting out bargains on supplies for her twins, "I am because I will look for the deals and then buy on that day so I will get the extra discount."

The sales tax holiday starts Thursday. The tax-free event will last through Sunday, and most school supplies, even computers, can be purchased without additional sales tax.
