By Mystic Matthews

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Tax free weekend was a major success here in East Texas.

Not only did parents save a little green, but stores said they raked in some green as well.

Lufkin Mall management says they had a better year than last year.

Belk also said they saw a 10% increase.

Target didn't have concrete numbers but said they had a great sales weekend as well.

Hopefully all the kids are ready to hit the books.  School starts next week for most area schools
