Albany -- The tax-free holiday was a big time for computer sales here in Albany.

At Circuit City managers say that desktop and laptops are hot items because of the tax free savings. in addition to it being back to school time. Sales were significantly more than double what they sell throughout the year.

Several families say they were wired up about buying a new computer, tax free.

"It's saving a lot of money, tax free. They're having this huge sale, and it's just a good store to come to," said Rachna Patel.

"A lot of cutomers really see the value in getting the sales tax. A lot of our customers like that even more than the promotions and other discounts we may offer with our weekly advertisements," said sales manager Carl James.

Circuit City kept staffers on extra shifts during the tax free holiday weekend. Tonight until midnight is the last chance you'll have to get your school supplies tax free.
