Tax-free weekend a gift to retailers.
BRAINTREE — They're calling it Christmas in August. Inundated with
shoppers on a sultry, summer weekend, giddy retailers said yesterday
that the state's first-ever Saturday and Sunday without a sales tax
could end up being the most profitable weekend of the year, beating the
$500 million in sales that shops usually reap during the final weekend
rush in late December. [Boston Globe — Front Page]
