Have you started thinking about Halloween yet? I know there are some people that really LOVE the holiday and are already thinking about what they’re going to dress up as, but most people are still trying to enjoy summer, right?!

We're 101 days away from Halloween, but it won’t be long until costumes are available because a Halloween store is about to open here in Rochester. Halloween is big business - The National Retail Federation said the average American spends a little over 90-bucks on Halloween and that includes everything from candy to decorations to costumes.

Nearly 150-million people celebrated one way or another last year during the pandemic so it’s probably safe to assume even more will dress up and go out this October.

It won't be long until you can get your costume for this year. Halloween Express has announced that they are opening soon in Rochester.

An opening date hasn’t been announced but their Facebook page says they are “COMING SOON!!” and explains they are currently setting up the store at Miracle Mile Shopping Center in Rochester.

I'm probably going to do what I do every year and wait until the week of to start thinking about Halloween, but I can vouch for Halloween Express. I've shopped there in the past and they have a great selection. They offer adult and kid costumes, props, and accessories.
