Tax Free Weekend continues to draw shoppers in the Hub City

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There's lot of activity in the Hub City this weekend, and that means you'll probably see some crowds where ever you are. Tax free weekend continues to draw sale-seekers to local stores, but the break ends Sunday. Lines and crowds have been an issue all over town. Tax free shoppers packed Lubbock department stores as soon as they opened their doors Saturday morning. The tax break started Friday at midnight and ends Sunday at midnight.

Some shoppers wonder if the savings are really worth it.  "Probably not for the crowds because it's hard to shop with two little ones but we are still having fun," said shopper Kimberly Warts.

Tax free savings include back to school items such as shoes and clothes.  This year the state added school supplies to the list of tax free items.
