Amarillo, TX - If you don't want to spend too much on a Halloween costume this year,you're probably not alone. its that time of year once again, when its normal to dress up as something not so normal and even with pocket books growing ever tighter in this economy, people are still flocking to local costume stores.
The price of Halloween costumes can make some people go crazy. Ridiculous or not, costumes are still selling at a good pace. The owner of "Spirit" in Amarillo says "Business has been good for "Spirit" here in Amarillo and we plan on coming back next year."
And some people are flocking to a place like costume castle where they can rent their costumes and bring them back. Rather then buy them and only wear them once. So they can spend less money and not have a costume sitting in their closest three hundred and sixty four days a year.
"I'm sure its something we're not gonna use more then once so yeah I would rather just rent. That way they don't have to buy something and use it year after year." on shopper said.
