How soon is too soon for Spirit Halloween stores?

Sure, it’s only August, and there are still 39 days of summer left. But more than a dozen Spirit Halloween costume stores in Illinois are already open for business.

According to a spokesperson website, at least 15 Chicago area Spirit Halloween stores are currently open for business. At least three Chicagoland Spirit Halloween store locations opened as early as July, the spokesperson said, as the majority of others opened in August.

Spirit Halloween operates more than 40 stores in Illinois, with at least 36 located in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, according to the spokesperson. Many Spirit Halloweens are located inside the buildings of large retailers that had previously closed its doors, including Bed Bath and Beyond, Office Depot, Sears, Marshalls, Carson’s and more.

According to Spirit Halloween’s website, the majority of its Illinois stores are scheduled to open in August. Some are listed as opening in September, and others are marked “Coming Soon.”
