GULFPORT, Miss. (WLOX) – Premium Outlets in Gulfport has been crammed for the last week with early back-to-school customers.
It comes as no shock to Aeropostale assistant manager Melissa Cuevas, but it has nothing to do with Gulfport’s early start because of its new year-round schedule.
“Well, when it comes down to the tax free weekend coming up, people like to avoid that weekend,” she said. “So, they try to come the weekend before. So, we expected it.”
But despite that, Cuevas is also expecting big crowds later this month.
“Tax free weekend will be just as crazy,” she said.
