Valhalla, NY (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Helping shoppers find the best Halloween deals, SaleLocator (http://salelocator.com), a shopping and sales search engine and mobile app, announced today savings tricks for Halloween necessities including:
1) Buy Costumes for Kids, Adults and Pets Now
Whether shopping for a Smurfs, Star Wars, superhero or princess costume, buy costumes now for the best selection and to avoid last-minute crowds. Search SaleLocator for the best offers at your local mall and party supply stores.
2) Search Local Craft Stores for Decorations Savings
According to the National Retail Federation, spending on Halloween décor is second only to spending on Christmas decorations. Check local craft and party supply stores like Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, A.C. Moore and Party City for the best prices on Halloween decorations including decorative pumpkins, scarecrows, skeletons, corn stalks and party supplies.
3) Don’t Forget Halloween Family Portraits
Many national retail chains including JCPenney and Sears offer great savings on Halloween and autumn photos for the family. Take advantage of the portrait package specials to maximize your savings and preserve your children’s Halloween memories.
4) Check a Variety of Stores for Candy Needs
Big box retailers, grocery and drug stores all offer great candy discounts, so compare sales. Sales combined with a manufacturer's coupon can equal great savings on your favorite treats. If you prefer to buy in bulk, look for deals at local warehouse stores.
5) Shop Columbus Day Sales
While Columbus Day is typically the official start of the holiday shopping season, take advantage of increased sales activity, and a long weekend for some, to complete your Halloween shopping.
“Halloween items are often picked over fast, so it is important for consumers to make purchases now,” said Michael Falkson, co-founder and CEO of SaleLocator. “Also, shoppers should stock up on next year’s decorations and party supplies immediately following the holiday for significant discounts.”
