get that good deal on electronics. How many electronics do you really need? Every year you need a new computer. We haven't had a new computer in four or five years," Retzbach said.

Retzbach works for the state of North Carolina.

"Without this weekend, the state's business climate will suffer significantly, as our residents will travel across state lines to shop tax free weekends in surrounding states or shop online," said Ellen. "The retail community always sees a significant increase in sales on Sales Tax Holiday weekend due to the savings customers receive on specials offered by retailers, particularly on big ticket items such as computers. This weekend is a great shot in the arm for retailers both independents and chains who are the largest private employers in North Carolina. Preserving the holiday state's brick and mortal retailers stay economically competitive." Ellen said. (News Release)

According to Nike Shorts Pink the Association, part of why lawmakers eliminated the holiday is that while it saves North Carolina consumers $14.7 million in sales tax, "the Department of Revenue estimates that it costs the state the same amount in lost sales tax revenue." (News Release)

Carolina are among several states across the country participating in the retail holiday. Notebooks, papers, pens and pencils filled shopping carts.

"I'm kind of glad they're getting rid of it. We need to save money somewhere in this state. Otherwise other programs are going to have to get cut, welfare, food stamps everything else. We have to save money some place," Retzbach said.

"I think the school year's going to start with bad morale because the government seems to be overlooking the assistance, the support that we need," Montross said.
