Spirit Halloween Pop-ups

Driving around our area one can’t help but notice that the usual slate of temporary Halloween stores has grown and become a bit more formalized. Halloween pop-up chain Spirit Halloween has moved in to three empty retail locations in our area…setting up the seasonal company to do big business over the next 10 days.

Spirit Halloween is a division of Spencer’s Gifts and is responsible for about 50% of Spencer’s overall $250 million in revenue, according to Forbes. Their business model is to rent large retail spaces that have been sitting vacant for long periods of time. They generally pay a premium to rent the space temporarily – for two months. And it all pays off…as the company currently boasts over 1,000 temporary locations nationwide.

The countdown is on! 10 days and counting…so if you are looking for fresh ideas for Halloween costumes, accessories and decorations, you can check out Spirit Halloween. Or see our local favorites below.
