What time is tax free weekend?

You're lucky and so are the people in any other state that does this. SD won't allow it, the poor government might miss out on some tax revenue. Myself I think it should be illegal to have sales tax on food, clothing and medicine.
In Al. it's Friday Aug-7, Sat-8 & Sunday-9,
This is from the North Carolina Department of Revenue site:
G.S. 105-164.13C provides an exemption for certain items of tangible personal property sold between 12:01 A.M. on the first Friday in August and 11:59 P.M. the following Sunday. For 2009, the dates are Friday, August 7th through Sunday, August 9th. Clothing, footwear, and school supplies of $100 or less per item; school instructional materials of $300 or less per item; sports and recreation equipment of $50 or less per item, computers of $3,500 or less per item; and computer supplies of $250 or less per item will be exempt.
Clothing accessories, jewelry, cosmetics, protective equipment, wallets, furniture, items used in a trade or business, and rentals are not covered by the exemption and will be subject to the applicable tax.
