You may have to fight for a parking spot at area malls, but the Georgia Department of Transportation is going to help shoppers get to stores for the state sales tax holiday Friday and Saturday.
GDOT announced Wednesday they will suspend construction-related lane closures within five miles of a mall or major shopping center during the holiday on Aug. 1 and 2. This will start at 8 a.m. Friday and end at 10 p.m. Saturday.
"The sales tax holiday is an opportunity for Georgians to save a little money during these challenging economic times," said Georgia DOT Commissioner Keith Golden. "The Department is glad to offer some relief from lane closures as families prepare for school."
