Back-to-School Tax Free Weekend Starts Friday

CORPUS CHRISTI - Texas' annual tax free weekend comes one week earlier this year. From Friday, August 9th to Sunday, August 11th, back-to-school shoppers will get a break on clothing, shoes, school supplies and backpacks.

The saved cash can add up when combined with other discounts as retailers compete for the increase in sales over the weekend.

La Palmera mall is adjusting hours this weekend to accommodate shoppers. Store hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. The mall will also open early on Sunday at 11 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.

Visit the Texas Comptroller's website for more information on what items qualify for the tax-exemption:
