Every year the amount of money spent by consumers on Halloween costumes, decorations and candy rises.  Even with the economy the way it is, experts predict spending for this Halloween will leap by double digits.  With everything going on in the world right now the fun and youthfulness of Halloween couldn't have come at a better time.  The holiday gives everyone a "pass" for the day to slow down, have fun and be a kid again! The National Retail Federation projects that this year, $5.77 billion (yes, that's billion with a "B") will be spent on the holiday, rising from $5.07 billion in 2007, a 14 percent increase.  This is how it breaks down:
  • $2.1 billion on costumes
  • $1.77 billion on candy
  • $1.58 billion on decorations
  • $320 million on cards
Halloween sales going up is a good thing here at HalloweenExpress.com.  It just shows that everybody enjoys the Halloween holiday as much as we do!  And who are we to argue with that?  However, HalloweenExpress.com does understand that not everyone has an unlimited budget to spend on Halloween costumes, accessories and decorations, so we've come up with a line of "Discount Costumes and Close-Out Costume" items with extra special low prices.  

You'll find womens costumes such as; Buccaneer Beauty or a Fashion Flapper.

 

Or perhaps you're looking for a man's costume such as; Mark Antony or a Valient Knight.
