    Thousands of shoppers packed South Shore Plaza in Braintree, Massachusetts, on Saturday, hoping to score deals during the tax-free weekend.

    The tax-free holiday weekend comes at a time when a lot of shoppers are also hunting for back-to-school deals. The mall said those two factors drove crowds into stores.

    Several stores were crowded, including the Apple store, where a line stretched outside the entrance.

    "I just got something exciting for my niece's Sweet 16," said Nelson Andrade. "So, like $1,700. I saved probably a couple hundred bucks."

    Other shoppers figured it was a good way to spend a rainy day.

    "I needed to get the kids out of the house, and I didn’t really look for deals," said Matt Bielack. "I just got a couple random things."

    The mall is also offering $25 gift cards to anyone who spends $150 or more at select stores.
