Nashville, TN - Right now, shoppers are gearing up for one of their favorite holidays of the year.

By Friday, Tennessee's sales tax holiday will be in full swing.
It's one of the most popular shopping weekends of the year.

This means you'll pay only the price you see on the tag for every item that qualifies from clothes to computers and school supplies.
That's about a 10-percent savings not counting the special sales on certain items.

Starting at 12:01 Friday, there will be no state or local sales tax on clothing and school supplies that cost less than 100-dollars each.

It also applies to computers priced at or below 1,500 dollars.

Stores like Best Buy are offering sales prices on top of that.

General Manager Marc Kunkle says getting people into the doors is key.

This weekend, they're expecting about 10,000 shoppers-- more than double a normal weekend.
Best Buy has learned from the past and has stocked its inventory according to what buyers want.

Kunkle says for their stores, this "holiday" ranks up there with the day after Thanksgiving.
And these shoppers are planning accordingly.

The tax-free holiday will end at 11:59 Sunday night.
