Items eligible for the Tennessee sales tax holiday include clothing for $100 or less, computers valued at or below $1,500, and school and art supplies costing $100 or less.
Target Store Director Brett Burris said the tax-free weekend is as big as Black Friday.
He said they have several activities planned for the children this weekend.
"They can sit around and color they will be samples of cookies, and drinks from Starbucks and cafe so they can actually have a little bit less stress as they shop this weekend with us," Burris said.
Burris said some of the biggest sellers are new backpacks and lunch boxes.
But he said the best asset this year isn't an item.
"Our School List Assist, so that absolutely is an ability for our guests to actually go online, pick their school, their class for their child, actually push one button and it will actually select every item that we have in our store on that list," Burris said.
He said Target will pick the items out and set them at the guest services counter for customers to pick up.
