This past weekend was ideal for both shoppers and stores alike, as all clothes and shoes under $100 on the Coast were tax free.

The sale happened just in time for back to school shopping, which filled stores with shoppers who were excited to get a good deal. Store management at Sears at the Edgewater Mall say the weekend was a success, with hundreds of shoppers taking advantage of the sales.

Manny Royo, the Assistant Store Manager of Sears, says, "It’s because the kids want to look good for their first day of school. When they see they're friends again and of course they want to have a new wardrobe for the new school year." Royo says big sellers this year were backpacks and polo shirts.
