GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - As part of the 2013 budget, Governor Patrick has approved a Sales Tax Holiday weekend for later this summer.
If you're planning to make a big buy, you can save some serious money if you wait until the Sales Tax Holiday.
One resident from Greenfield told 22News a lot of people do wait and do shop.
The popular sales tax holiday is back for 2012. Many people want to take advantage of sales on big ticket items like appliances.
Betty Martin is shopping for quality and wants to save on that 6.25 percent sales tax.
"The savings especially with the economy being the way it is everyone is looking to save a little bit of money," said Betty Martin of Vermont.
The final week before the tax free weekend is when people bust through the door.
The store manager of Manny's James Berties says a lot of people pre-select, they come in they know what they want we give them a list and they come back.
Berties says it hurts sales leading up to the sales tax holiday weekend but they make a month's worth of business.
There is no sales tax on any items that cost more than $2,500.
There will be two tax-free days on August 11th and 12th.
