ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Home improvement stores say they aren't seeing a big turn-out during this weekend's energy star tax-free holiday. Georgians are able to save four-percent state sales tax on all Energy Star and WaterSense appliances.

At Lowe's shoppers were able to save an additional 10 percent, but the number of people taking advantage this year has been low.

"So far this year because of things in the state of the economy, it's not going as well as we would like it too. And also this year they have put a cap. It is up to 1,500 dollars or less," said Sales Manager, Wanda Johnson.

You still have a few hours to take advantage of the Energy Star tax-free holiday. The holiday expires at midnight.
