 The state is suspending the 6.25% sales tax on consumer items under $2500 for the weekend of August 14 – 15. Exceptions include cars, motorboats, meals, telecommunications services, gas, electricity and cigarettes.

A number of retailers will also be offering sales and discounts to attract more customers. Some malls will also offer extended hours.
