Despite skeptics, many savers savor state tax holiday

Matt Jackling has a new home he needs to furnish. Between the weekend’s sales tax holiday and in-store deals, he saved a cool grand on appliances and furniture at one store before heading to another on Sunday morning to buy a bed.

“We recently bought a house, so we’ve been waiting to buy a lot of other things for it,” Jackling, 32, of Salem, said as he entered Jordan’s Furniture in Reading. “We were shopping all weekend and bought other stuff, too.”
