Tax-free weekend starts this Friday and businesses in downtown McAllen are already preparing.
The McAllen Chamber of Commerce says they’re expecting a big turnout citywide this weekend.
“It’s a good opportunity for families to save a little money,” said McAllen Chamber of Commerce President Steve Ahlenious. “It’s a good opportunity for local retail businesses to see that big bump – and it’s also a lead into the holiday season.”
And although international ports remain closed for neighboring Mexico shoppers, businesses owners are optimistic with kids going back to 100% in-person learning.
