Bronx shoppers looking forward to tax free shopping

The school year begins in two weeks and there's a lot of back to school shopping to do. As Bronx parents and kids head out to the stores, they have a chance to save a few extra dollars.

For one week starting on Tuesday, there will be no city or state sales tax charged for all footwear and clothing totaling $110 or less.Many Bronx shoppers say they won't begin back to school shopping for their children until Tuesday, so they can take advantage.

The tax free exemption ends on Monday September 1.
