NRF: Halloween Shoppers Plan To Spend Less In 2013
Halloween is more than a month away, but shoppers are already getting a head start on their holiday shopping. But is it a trick or a treat for local retailers?
158 million -- that's how many people will be participating in Hallloween this year, but they won't be digging as deep in their wallets when it comes to buying their Halloween goodies.
According to the survey, Halloween participation is also down nearly 12 million people, but of the 158 million that will be lining the Halloween aisles, a third of them will start shopping before the end of this month.
