Ready, set, shop!
The state's ninth annual tax-free shopping weekend begins at midnight Friday and concludes at midnight Sunday.
During the long weekend, the state's sales and use tax is lifted on purchases of clothes, shoes, school supplies, book bags, computers, computer parts, printers and more.
Students and parents of students often take advantage of the weekend to buy clothing and school supplies for the coming year.
South Carolina shoppers typically save about $2.8 million in sales tax during the event, according to the S.C. Department of Revenue.
