Let's be honest: we've been waiting for the 2019 opening day of Spirit Halloween since its closing date last year! The Halloween retailer is only open for a few months each year leading up to the spookiest holiday, so the store's opening day is seriously a big deal if you love affordable, fun Halloween merch (and want to decorate as soon as possible). What you might not know, though, is that there is no single, official "opening day" for the company as a whole.
Spirit Halloween is a franchise with individual locations all across the country, and each one is individually operated. That degree of independence means each individual store opens on a different day, rather than all of them on the same day. Most stores open in late August or early September to maximize availability during the peak Halloween buying weeks. So what's your best bet for finding your local store's opening day? Spirit Halloween's website and store locator has plenty of info on where your nearest stores are, plus their scheduled opening dates, so just keep an eye on the site to get the opening dates for the stores in your area. While you wait, their 2019 merchandise is already available online, so if you're ready for a Halloween fix before your local store is open, there's plenty of spooky decor and costumes to browse!
