HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - If you're a little behind on getting school supplies good news, so is tax-free weekend. Schoolcraft owner Wilson McClellan thinks tax-free weekend comes a week too late, since school has already started.

"I'm afraid that parents have already spent money and did not get any kind of tax break at all. Parents who spend now will, of course," said McClellan.

He said they had over 600 customers last weekend getting ready for the new school year. He said this weekend, customers will be looking for some specific items.

"The teachers are looking for classroom supplies to help brighten things up. Parents are looking for things like rest mats, and paper and pencils, and of course the standard school supplies," he said.

Wilson has high hopes for tax-free weekend at Schoolcraft. He said they're looking forward to help getting the school year off to a great start.

"This should be a very busy day tomorrow, hopefully it will be," he said.

Schoolcraft is open 9 a.m to 3 p.m. on Saturday, but they will be closed on Sunday. Tax Free Weekend started at midnight Friday, and will continue through midnight on Sunday.
