Students looking for spooky outfits to wear on Oct. 31 can check out Spirit Halloween, which opened last month and took over the building formerly occupied by Aki-Home in the Amerige Heights Town Center

“People like to dress up as [characters from] ‘It,’ Fortnight and anything scary,” district manager Teri Perez said of some of the more popular costumes the store has sold so far. “For some reason, people really like the scary stuff.”

Among the items on display is a skeleton dressed in a clown outfit and a fuchsia wig with a sign that reads, “FREE HUGZ.”

Additionally, the costume store is different from other Halloween shops because of its interactive activities.

“People come in because they love to step on the plates [in the store] and be scared, and they love it since you cannot beat it when it comes to home decorations and mugs,” said Perez, adding that the store will close on Nov. 3.
