It’s that time of year again.
The chill is in the air, pumpkins are ripe for picking and assorted candy-filled aisles are ready to go. Fall has arrived and with it, one of many peoples’ favorite holidays, Halloween.
According to The National Retail Federation, each year the Halloween industry brings in an estimated $6 billion dollars in the United States. The average American spends roughly $65 each year on Halloween costumes and decorations. That’s not including the $22 they spend on buying candy! After all, Halloween is the second highest-grossing holiday after Christmas.
Now the time has come to pick out a costume. So maybe you have a daughter who refuses to be anything but Strawberry Shortcake. Or you may have a son who knows that it’s all about The Avengers this year.
Perhaps you, yourself are looking for the perfect costume that you can wear to a co-worker’s party.
With over 4,000 new costumes for 2012, in addition to past favorites and decorations, Halloween Express has one of the largest selections to choose from. The store also has thousands of costume masks, wigs and other accessories to complement your choice of attire.
They have Adult and Kids costumes, broken down into other categories including “Group Costumes,” “Plus-Size Costumes,” as well as “TV & Movie Costumes.” They even offer “Pet Costumes” for your furry friends!
