Tax holiday a great success

If you made your way near any shopping center this weekend, you probably already know how successful Georgia's tax free weekend was.

Many stores had to bring in extra employees to accommodate the large crowds. Retailers in Valdosta say they drew in customers from as far as Jacksonville.

"It was wild, crazy, fun, exciting, and very, very busy," said Joe Capers, JC Penny manager.

Retailers estimate that this weekend brought in 25% more sales than Georgia's last tax free holiday, held back in March.
