Party City is the go-to for all fun Halloween stuff, and this season is no different. If you’re past ready to put up your goblins, ghosts, and witches, and you’ve been sitting on the edge of your debit card ready to buy up your family’s costume, then you need to know when Party City puts out their Halloween stuff.
It’s more than trick-or-treating, coming up with the scariest or cutest homemade costumes, carving pumpkins, and baking ghost and monster cookies with the kids. For those who really get into the spirit of All Hallows’ Eve, their homes are donned with huge spider webs across the porch or headstones and skeleton arms protruding from the ground on their front lawn. Like that one neighbor whose Halloween decorations look more like the scariest movie you’ve ever seen than just a seasonal display — it’s hard to pass by their house without slowing to see if a shadowy ghost passes through a window.
And when it comes to costumes? Party City literally has it all. Every thing you can think of, from popular character costumes to fun wigs and makeup, you can outfit the whole family in one trip to the store. But how soon you can fill up your basket?
“We have some decorations out now, but we are still waiting on our shipment,” a Party City member told Romper via phone.
After contacting several Party City locations, the general consensus is that you can get an early start at the first items that have made it to the floor, but if you want to see a broader selection, stores will be fully stocked with a wide variety of Halloween ornaments, trinkets, and costumes by the end of August. If that’s too long of a wait, then the quickest way to get your goodies is by purchasing online. Who wants to get off the couch if you don’t have to?
Their online-only Halloween selection, which is available now, offers exclusive items that aren’t available at any of their stores, so yay for couch shopping! And just hold tight for when the stores are full of all the spooky things you need.
