As summer ends, and fall approaches, we start thinking about Halloween. Then, we start to think about where we will buy these special, one of a kind costumes. Oswego, and Aurora, Illinois have some of the best Halloween shops around to fill all your spooky needs. From costumes and masks, to decorations and candy, these 3 stores have it all.
Halloween Express, located at 1720 Douglas Road, in Oswego, Il, was once the Circuit City in town. Every fall they open their doors as one of the leading, Halloween emporiums in the area. They carry every costume imaginable, from super heros and gangsters, to Disney princesses and farm animals. They carry costumes for children and adults, and they are very reasonably priced. They also carry an assortment of masks, wigs, face paints, and hats. You have the ability here to make your costume very simple or very elaborate, depending on your needs and budgets. I have shopped here in the past, and I give them an A for supply, service, and cleanliness.
Next, we have Party City. It is located at 3050 U.S. Route 34, in Oswego, as well, and sits in the Target/Dominicks shopping plaza. I tend to shop here every year, because they always have what I am looking for. Not only do they carry costumes for adults and children, but they are actually displayed by pictures on the wall. You simply give the sales associate the number and size of the costume you need, and they get it for you. Their selection here is very big as well, and they too supply accessories like face paint, masks, and wigs. Party City also carries a large assortment of party favors and paper goods, which helps make planning any Halloween party easy and accessible. It’s a one stop shop, for all your Halloween needs. I give it an A+ for supply, service and cleanliness.
Lastly, there is the Halloween Store, located at 195 Fox Valley Center, in Aurora, Il. I have only been here once in the past. It is a huge store. They carry costumes for children and adults. They carry accessories, decorations, lights, and an assortment of candy. They are reasonably priced. One, unique feature about this store, is that they have sold huge, animatronic figures in the past. They are expensive, but usually end up at half the price the day after Halloween. I give them an A for supply, service, and cleanliness.
