Texas' annual tax-free weekend starts Friday and runs through Sunday.

Shoppers will get a break from sales tax on certain items that cost less than $100, including many school supplies and most clothing. The tax holiday could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 spent.

But certain leather goods, handbags, jewelry and helmets aren't eligible. (See a list of what is eligible at the Texas Comptroller's website.)

Several North Texas malls have extended shopping hours this weekend:

  • Collin Creek Mall: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
  • Hulen Mall: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
  • Northeast Mall: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday
  • NorthPark Center: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday
  • Parks at Arlington: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
  • Ridgmar Mall: 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday
  • Stonebriar Centre: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
  • Town East Mall: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
  • Vista Ridge Mall: 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday
