NC residents flock to SC for tax-free weekend

- With the beginning of the school year approaching, many parents are starting to shop for school supplies, clothes and shoes.

If you haven’t started, no need to worry! You can take advantage of Tax-Free Weekend in South Carolina.

Tax exempt deals this weekend include typical supplies like glue, pencils, and paper. However, you can also stock up on big ticket items like calculators, shoes, backpacks, dorm essentials, and even laptops.

Since North Carolina did away with their tax-free weekend about four years ago, many residents flock to South Carolina for a good deal.

Large crowds are to be expected, but many businesses are prepared for the influx of people.

The general manager at the Walmart in Tega Cay told me, “We’re expecting a huge crowd to come in. We’ve overstaffed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday just to meet the needs of our customers because we know this is an important weekend.”

For a full list of tax exempt items this weekend, check out the SC Dept. of Revenue.
