The Halloween shopping season is underway at Goodwill Southern California’s 81 stores. The retailer brings back its popular Halloween BOO-Tiques, providing shoppers with everything Halloween.
Goodwill Southern California’s Halloween BOO-Tiques have become known as one of Southern California’s most popular one-stop shops for finding deeply discounted Halloween costumes and accessories. Shopping at GSC’s Halloween BOO-Tiques, which feature Halloween-inspired costumes, make-up, home decorations and props, has become a big tradition among Southern California shoppers.
Goodwill Southern California (GSC) serves individuals with disabilities or other vocational challenges by providing education, training, work experience and job placement services.
This year, the stores are introducing a new Halloween mask section featuring pirate, masquerade, steam punk and Day of the Dead masks for $2.96-$17.96.
“Each year our staff spends anywhere from three to five months preparing for Halloween,” says GSC Vice President of retail operations Ray Tellez. “This year we have done an exceptional job finding unique items for our shoppers. I think that the response will be tremendous.”
Another feature making its debut in all of this year’s BOO-Tiques is a pictorial costume Look Book that features a variety of costume inspirations. Some of this year’s costume inspirations include Zombie Prom Queen, Day of the Dead Reveler, 1920s Great Gatsby, Pirates of the Caribbean, Comic-Con, Totally 80’s, Once Upon a Time, Presidential Candidates, Olympic Champions, Flower Power 70’s and Steampunk. You might also find your child’s favorite if you do some digging or call your local store to inquire. Don’t be afraid to go on your own to scope out multiple stores if you’re looking for something specific. There are lots of options and each store has different stock.
Goodwill Southern California’s Halloween BOO-Tiques are open through Oct. 31, but shoppers are encouraged to shop early for best selection. For more information about GSC’s Halloween BOO-Tiques or to locate a store, visit www.goodwillsocal.org/shop.
