WESTPORT - Tax-free week ends in Connecticut tomorrow, and shoppers are flocking to retail stores to get in their last-minute purchases.

Employees at ASF Sports and Outdoors say tax-free week has been incredibly busy this year. They say the thought of saving 6.35 percent often incentivizes shoppers to buy more products.

Parents also say they are trying to take advantage of the remaining tax-free time.

The state estimates that it will lose about $8 million in tax revenue, but it won't have specific numbers for several weeks.

Tax-free week ends tomorrow night.
