Southern California Spirit Halloween & Halloween Adventure Stores/
plus other temporary Halloween shops
In the slide show above, you're viewing pictures of cool, cute and even scary costumes that have been sent in by some of our readers. Isn't it time that you found YOUR Halloween costume? On this page, you'll find Southern California seasonal stores, like Spirit Halloween & Halloween Adventure. Please see our Year-Round SoCal Costume Stores page for shops which operate all 12 months of the year.
What is a "temporary" Halloween costume store?Spirit Halloween, Halloween Adventure, Halloween America, Halloween City and a few independents are temporary, seasonal Halloween stores.
What are temporary Halloween stores? These are shops that operate ONLY in September and October every year, and are specifically designed to bring you a wide range of Halloween costumes and decorations. While your local party stores, grocery markets and discount stores will certainly be setting up aisles filled with costumes and supplies, the limited space they have will not allow you the widest variety of Halloween merchandise that's possible.
Temporary Halloween stores are large...big enough to bring a much wider range of Halloween decorations, costumes, wigs, masks and accessories than your corner drug store or supermarket can offer you.
You may not have heard of the Spirit Halloween Stores or the Halloween Adventure stores...simply because MOST of the year, these companies sell costumes on-line only. BUT...for just 2 months before Halloween, Spirit stores & Halloween Adventure stores pop into local malls and shopping centers so that you can pick out your costume from a company which makes Halloween costumes the very heart & soul of their business. They know costumes and costume accessories inside and out because they deal with them 12 months of the year via their on-line store fronts. And, after Halloween is over, you can still fix problems, get information, or find costumes for other occasions at their websites.
Why are temporary Halloween stores a benefit to you? You get the widest possible selection of Halloween costumes, while keeping the prices you pay as low as possible.
Obviously, selling Halloween costumes can't keep food on the tables of a large staff of employees year-round. (Selling costumes is not a job YOU'D want to depend on for money...in April...right?) Well, here's their clever idea. A core of full-time staff members can run the costume business year-round via their internet-based stores. They can work on developing a large catalog of costumes and accessories, while only having to pay a few employees to do this.
Then, when Halloween time rolls around, their temporary stores pop into whatever vacant spaces they can find. Temporary employees get hired...dozens, hundreds or even thousands of employees, depending on the size of the chain. A frenzy of activity takes place as Halloween-lovers choose their costumes, masks & makeup. Then, the stores simply fold up after Halloween. Costume prices stay as low as possible...and everyone is happy. (It's just like how the Calendar Club sells its huge line of calendars at various malls every December, then the stores disappear again after New Year's Day.)
Locations may or may not be the same in 2014 as you remember from last year. Since Spirit Halloween and Halloween Adventure both use shopping center spaces which happen to be sitting empty at the moment Halloween is approaching, this list of Spirit Halloween store locations changes from year to year. It all depends on what retail spaces are vacant at the time the temporary Halloween shops are ready to open.
