ends Saturday, and for some people, that means it's time to rush to the mall and save 6 percent on a new pair of jeans.
But others may not be going to stores at all. They may be saving even more -- by shopping online.
Some major online outlets are offering big discounts and free shipping, in addition to the tax break this week.
Jeff Zellmer, the vice president of government affairs for the Maryland Retailers Association, told the Journal that online sales account for between 15 and 20 percent of the retail market.
