Businesses weigh in on tax-free days

SITKA, ALASKA Across the country, people turned out Friday (11-27) for the annual day-after-Thanksgiving shopping ritual known as Black Friday. It’s called that because it’s the day retailers can switch from red ink to black ink on their balance sheets. In Sitka, plenty of people hit the streets to shop, in part because of a sales tax holiday, which was held Friday and Saturday.
