SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Halloween is less than a month away and businesses are well stocked with costumes and other spooky goodies.
Employees at Value Village in Springfield say a lot of the popular costumes this year are from TV shows and pop culture; but, they say some costumes are a blast from the past that will never get old. The 1920’s flapper costume is almost sold out, and cowboy and cowgirl costumes too.
Value Village employees say now is the time sales start to peak. Shoppers say it doesn’t matter how old you are, Halloween appeals to all ages.
“Get all dressed up, get weird it’s an excuse just to get weird and have a good time with your friends,” said shopper Brandon Dawkins.
“It’s always more fun if you go as a group. I mean if you can find one costume that’s really good you can just blow everyone away with, it’s okay, but normally there’s like 20 other people in that costume if you buy it,” said shopper Chris DeVore.
Fairy costumes are also popular for little girls.
October is also about the Fall Harvest. Thistledown Farm employees say they’ve been working around the clock for their grand opening Saturday. The farm will feature corn mazes, a petting zoo and horse drawn wagon rides.
