Those who want to get a head start on their Halloween costume shopping are in luck. Several seasonal Spirit Halloween pop up shops are now open on the Peninsula.
A Spirit Halloween store is now operating on Jefferson Avenue in Newport News in the former Babies R Us store, while Williamsburg area residents can pick up Halloween items at the Spirit Halloween shop off Monticello Avenue in Settlers Market in the space once occupied by Party City.
A third Spirit Halloween store will open soon in Hampton on Von Schilling Drive near Forever 21 and Buffalo Wild Wings.
Spirit Halloween is the largest Halloween retailer in the country and sells Halloween costumes, decorations, and exclusive animatronics. In addition to the stores on the Peninsula, there are also several locations on the Southside and in Richmond.
