The Massachusetts Retailers Association says that retailers throughout the state brought in around $500 million over the past weekend due to the annual sales tax holiday.

 According to the Association this is 4 to 5 times more than a typical weekend throughout the year.

The association says the number of shoppers and money spend over the weekend mirrors what is spent in a weekend in December leading up to Christmas.
