Georgia tax free weekend helping small business

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - It's tax free weekend in Georgia and Erin Carrick is checking out.

"I saved a $1.60."

It doesn't sound like much, but for small business owners like Amy Epps, it's plenty.

"She initially was just making that one purchase and we mentioned the pajama shorts were actually included in the tax free, so she went back and got them."

Clothing, school supplies, even computers are on the tax free list this weekend in Georgia.

Epps says it's a push to get out and shop. It's great for everyone and brings in new business.

"We have loyal customers and we have new customers. We're excited for the new faces."
