Hundreds of people will flock to the stores this weekend to buy tax-free school supplies, electronics and clothes.
Charity organizations are hoping shoppers will pick up some extra school supplies or clothes to donate.
Lexington Interfaith Community Services (LICS) is collecting school supplies but also needs men's clothing and shoes for their thrift store.
"The women's section is full and there are a lot of children's clothes, but men just don't donate their clothes and shoes," said Executive Director Robin Bowers. "They wear them out and throw them away."
LICS accepts used clothing and shoes, so this weekend may be a good time to clean out your closet.
