Halloween Spending

October 25, 2009

Albany, GA - Halloween is less than a week away.  The day was originally meant to celebrate the end of the harvest and the summer, but over the years it's turned into a giant industry for retailers to cash in on.

But that cash may be less this year. 

Experts say one of the spookiest parts of Halloween may be the amount people plan to spend on their celebrations.

According to the National Retail Federation, consumers are expected to spend an average of $56 on Halloween, down $10 from last year.

Some stores are starting to see a difference.  As a result they're not putting out as much Halloween merchandise and they're giving big discounts.
