Remember the Stein Mart at Falls of Neuse Road, the Bed Bath & Beyond on Glenwood Avenue, or the Tuesday Morning at Buck Jones Road?

They’re all gone but still here in spirit because they’ve been transformed into Spirit Halloween stores. This year, the spooky shop has five seasonal locations in Raleigh, and even more in its surrounding areas.

Let’s pull the mask off and learn more. Spirit Halloween finds temporary leases and moves into retail spaces that would otherwise be vacant. This is why there are so many — to the point it’s become a meme — and they might be in different locations next year. Did you know? The chain is owned by Spencer Gifts LLC, you know, that quirky novelty store from the mall.

Prefer to shop local? These stores have a scary selection of new and pre-owned costumes:

  • The Tilted Stage Costume Shoppe | 6602 Glenwood Ave., Ste. 6 | From full mascot wear to period pieces, this spot has intricate costumes to rent or purchase.
  • Children’s Orchard | 2865 Jones Franklin Rd. | Shop kid’s costumes for up to 70% off the retail price.

Or, browse through local thrift, vintage, and consignment shops for out of the box ideas.
