The Target located in Cary Crossroads Plaza was seeing two to three times its normal traffic, spokeswoman Stephanie Perryman said Friday.
Beverly Baker brought her children to the store so they could help pick out school supplies. “It has saved us tremendously,” Baker said.
The annual tax holiday was started several years ago to help families purchasing back-to-school supplies, but it also includes other merchandise.
Although Washington, D.C., canceled its sales-tax holiday, a spokeswoman for Gov. Beverly Perdue said there was no discussion during recent budget negotiations to cancel North Carolina's tax-free weekend. Spokeswoman Chrissy Pearson noted that the annual tax-free weekend is written into state law, and legislators would have had to approve another measure to override it.
