Shop ‘til You Drop Dead at These Local Halloween Stores


For fans of Halloween, one day is just not enough. In fact, even a month can seem too short! As soon as the leaves start changing in Metro Detroit and the temperatures get more “comfortable,” people seem to be ready with decorations, horror movie marathons and pumpkin carving parties.

Now, the big question on every Halloween fan’s mind is, “What costume will I wear this year?” Depending on your budget and Halloween plans, you might elect to recycle some oldies-but-goodies, but if you’re feeling the Halloween spirit and want to support some local Metro Detroit stores instead of the big box places, check out these spooktacular stores below!

Screamers Costumes

Most Halloween stores are obviously only open during Halloween season. Not Screamers Costumes in Clinton Township. They are open all year (with varying store hours) and carry everything you need for Halloween (and most other holidays). What’s great about their year-round schedule is that while you’re there shopping for Halloween, you can start to plan ahead for things, like Thanksgiving, Christmas and more.
