ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Georgia's 2008 back to school sales tax holiday is just three days away, and businesses are gearing up for big sales.
Lollipop Kids in Americus runs their sidewalk sale in conjunction with the tax holiday because they say it traditionally brings more shoppers into the store. Clothing, shoes, school supplies and personal computers are all exempt during the four day tax holiday.
"Fall season is coming and school is starting back and everybody is looking for the deals to get their kids dressed in," said Jerri Ann Smith, Lollipop Kids.
The sales tax holiday runs from 12:01 a.m Thursday through midnight Sunday. For a complete list of exempt items you can log onto the Department of Revenue website at www.dor.ga.gov.
