Halloween spending predicted to be down from last year


Halloween is right around the corner, and one study predicts consumers will spend less on the holiday this year.      

According to the National Retail Federation, about $7 billion will be spent on Halloween costumes, candy and decorations. That is about one billion down from last year.

Jack Wellman, the owner of Dakota Party in Rapid City, said so far sales have been steady, but the real push comes the ten days before Halloween.    

"People, I think, are starting to get in the mood for Halloween, so we're starting to see the decor pick up. And all of the wearable accessories and wigs will start picking up now going into the last week of Halloween," said Wellman.

Wellman also said while the store is open year round selling party goods and decorations, Halloween is the busiest season.
