Despite the economic situation, Halloween is still playing a very important role in the American culture. According to Savers, the global thrift retailer, the average family of four expects to spend $300 this year celebrating Halloween!
Another shocker, while most parents (87 percent) plan to dress up their child this Halloween, on average they plan to spend only $32 on their little one’s costume–much less than what they plan to spend on themselves ($52) or the family pet. Here is the ugly truth about the parents’ selfless love for their children!
For more than 50 years Savers has helped customers find great Halloween costumes at a great value. With brand, new ready-made costumes, including exclusive looks and officially licensed characters starting as low as $9.99 and ranging up to $59.99, there’s a costume for every budget. When coupled with the thousands of new Halloween accessories as well as an endless selection of secondhand clothing, from new wigs and fairy wings to authentic uniforms, cowboy chaps and 80’s prom dresses, there are literally millions of ways to create a complete, unique look at Savers.
