Summer is drawing to a close. With Brunswick County Schools resuming classes on Thursday, Aug. 25, teachers and parents are preparing for the return of the school year by stocking up on back-to-school items.
This weekend is the perfect time to ring up the savings as North Carolina celebrates its annual sales tax holiday. This 2011 holiday will last three days beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 5, and ending at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7.
The sales tax holiday applies to many necessary back-to-school items and offers all shoppers a chance to save.
