North America's Largest Seasonal Halloween Retailer to Open More Than 1,000 Locations Nationwide this Halloween
Egg Harbor Township, N.J., (Sept. 24, 2012) – Spirit Halloween, the largest seasonal Halloween retailer in North America, has officially opened its doors for the 2012 Halloween season, providing the best in costumes and décor to suit all ghouls and goblins. From super heroes like The Avengers and Spiderman to on-screen favorites Adventure Time and Monster High, Spirit Halloween has kids covered with this season's top costumes. And for adults, the hit movie Ted will be battling it out like the Hunger Games this October.
This year, Spirit will open more than 1,000 stores across the United States and Canada featuring interactive and unforgettable in-store experiences including The Barn, House of Horrors and the Zombie Terror Mill to excite and fright all customers. Kids and adults alike will also have the opportunity to get caught in a stockade for a fun photo opp. Halloween enthusiasts can bring the fun home with Spirit's exclusive line of décor featuring the infamous Zombie Babies, animated Jumping Spider and all new animatronics including the Teddy Bear Girl from AMC's "The Walking Dead".
"At Spirit Halloween it is our mission to get everyone excited for the Halloween season," said Steven Silverstein, President and CEO, Spirit Halloween. "Each year we strive to offer the best costumes, décor and a frightening, fun experience for our customers no matter what their age."
As North America's largest seasonal Halloween retailer and the leading authority for Halloween fashion and trends, it is the obligation of Spirit Halloween to announce the top costumes each year. This year Spirit Halloween names the following:
  • The Avengers
  • Adventure Time
  • Monster High
  • Power Rangers
  • Batman
  • Spiderman
  • Hunger Games
  • Ted
  • Angry Birds
  • Zombies
In addition to announcing the top costumes each year, Spirit Halloween has another job: Forecasting the next president of the United States. Since the mid-90s, Spirit has accurately predicted the winner of the past four presidential elections with its Presidential Index, based on nationwide sales of U.S. presidential candidate masks.
At the heart of Spirit Halloween is the Spirit of Children program which focuses on making hospitals less scary for kids and their families. Since its inception in 2006, Spirit of Children has brought smiles, laughter and a much needed escape to thousands of pediatric patients in 130 hospitals across the United States and Canada. One hundred percent of the money collected each year is given directly to the local Child Life Departments at partner hospitals. Spirit of Children's goal is to raise $3.5 million this year, bringing its total contribution total to more than $10 million. Spirit encourages customers to head to their local Spirit Halloween store or visit online to make a difference in a child's life today.
