Happy Halloween

Are you ready to dress up and take part in the scariest holiday of the year? If so, celebrate Halloween in style this year by visiting one of these awesome pop up stores.

Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve is a yearly holiday celebrated in different countries all around the world. In the US we celebrate this day every year on the last day of October. The day started as a day to remember the dead, including saints, martyrs and all the faithful departed believers. The holiday has since evolved into a celebration of costumes, candy and haunted attractions.  All across the country people are celebrating this one night to dress in their scariest attire, trick-or- treat, or just watch a scary movie. This spook-tacular holiday is definitely one of the most celebrated of the year.

Whether you’re watching a scary movie, having little kids ringing your door bell for candy, or going to a Halloween themed party, it’s important to dress up and play the part. Luckily, there are convenient Halloween pop up stores that open up all around different cities and towns to make our costume picking easier. But these convenient pop-up stores don’t just pop up a month before the big day. They require early planning with the right management and staff usually for an entire year before making the big debut!

Big time stores such as Party City, Ricky’s, and Spirit all open up temporary stores for just two months out of the year to supply the necessities for Halloween. Ricky’s, a beauty salon located throughout New York City, opens up a chain of pop-up stores that take almost the entire year to prepare for. Perfecting these pop-up stores takes time and effort, but the outcome is well worth it. As for Ricky’s, these Halloween pop-up stores make up 20 percent of the chain’s annual $55 million in sales which means, preparing the best inventory for this day is very important. These stores provide bold and crazy costumes, makeup, accessories and decorations that will make Halloween a memorable celebration. Seeking out great locations, hiring the right staff, and ordering enough inventory are all factors that will result in success! We thank these small businesses for giving us somewhere to go for our most BOO-tiful costumes and decorations!
