Shoppers Take Advantage of Tax-Free Saturday at Des Moines-area Malls

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Today is the final day to take part in tax-free Saturday, which means it's also a great time for back to school shopping.

Shoppers ventured out to Valley West Mall in hopes of finding the best deals.

Workers there say the tax-free holiday always draws big crowds with it being the perfect time to shop for back to school clothes.

"This is a great time for our customers to come in and take advantage of our huge savings and open up that credit card as well and they can save up to an extra 20 percent," said Meoucha Montoyia, a JCPenny employee. "We love it."

JCPenny will be open until 10 p.m. Saturday and tax exempt sales will end at midnight.
