ATLANTA - Forget about Jack-o’-lanterns, changing leaves, and a chill in the air – the real sign that fall has finally arrived is the appearance of a Spirit Halloween store in a neighborhood near you.
For more than 30 years, Spirit Halloween has been a leader in Halloween costumes, accessories, décor, props, and more. Initially founded back in 1983, the company was purchased by Spencer’s in 1999 and now encompasses more than a thousand seasonal locations across the United States and Canada. This year, the spooky Spirit “guides” say popular costume options include looks from the Atlanta-filmed hit TV show “Stranger Things,” exclusive costumes from the much-loved Halloween film Hocus Pocus (with Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Nijimi as the Sanderson Sisters), and social-media inspired get-ups. Popular animatronics this year include a life-sized Pumpkin King from The Nightmare Before Christmas and the Towering Creepy Clown!
Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent the morning at the Spirit Halloween store at 3330 Piedmont Road in Atlanta, getting ready for his favorite day of the year by trying on some costumes and shopping for the scariest decorations around!
