Halloween retail

Dress up

You could start an in-store competition for your staff - inspiring them to come to work in creative costumes. Share images of your staff costumes across your social media and have your customers vote on their favorite costumes.

Trick or Treat!

Have lollies on your counter for kids (or customers!) who come into your store dressed up - it’s a great way to surprise and delight your customers and encourage the Halloween spirit.

Open late

Late night opening hours are a great way to stick with the Halloween theme while encourage more spending and enticing more customers in-store. You might even want to run a late night sale to peak interest.

Play Halloween music

Monster Mash, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Ghostbusters - Full your store with catchy sounds. For some vintage Halloween music try this playlist! You could even change your in-store lighting to another colour, like red or green to truly change the environment of your store!
