Company History

Halloween Express is one of the most aggressive and dynamic Halloween chains in the United States. Started in 1990, Halloween Express has both company owned and franchised locations throughout the U.S. Our success is based on offering the largest selection of Halloween merchandise available anywhere. Our merchandise assortment is updated annually to ensure that the latest product trends, as well as the tried-and-true best sellers and licensed product are part of the merchandise mix. Each season we scour the planet looking for the latest and most sought after costumes and accessories available today.

By leveraging the huge buying power of retail store locations coupled with our year-round ecommerce operation we're able to offer the absolute largest selections of Halloween costumes and Halloween related items you'll find online. Plus, with over two decades of experience in being one of the largest and most respected Halloween costume and accessory suppliers out there, you can make you purchase with confidence knowing that we'll be here.

We continue to offer all seasonal costumes and accessories 365 days per year. You'll also find us on Amazon, EBay and JET. While we encourage you to visit one of our retail locations during Halloween season, you can find the same great selection of merchandise here on our website year round.
