It’ll be easy to stay indoors the entire time unless you’re craving a piece of cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. Unfortunately, we can’t help you out there. What we will do though, is give you the rundown of what you should know about the eligible items for tax exemption, and a round-up of some of this weekend’s deals at Harper’s Preserve’s favorite local shopping mall –
