While many people are still in the midst of summer celebrations, Halloween fans are already counting down the days until spooky season is upon us. Spirit Halloween is preparing to open locations statewide by hosting a grand opening event at its flagship store in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey. As if the store opening wasn’t exciting enough, the in-person event will also feature the world premiere of next year’s trailer Spirit Halloween: The Movie, which will debut later this year. There will also be a range of family-friendly experiences to ring in the spookiest time of the year. The grand opening of Spirit Halloween in Egg Harbor Township will take place on July 30th.
“The official opening of Spirit Halloween stores is always special, but this year there’s extra buzz in the air with the news of our first-ever feature-length film,” said Steven Silverstein, CEO of Spirit Halloween, in a statement. “We’re thrilled to keep up the momentum and welcome superfans from across the country to be among the first to shop for the 2022 collection and help us officially kick off the Halloween season earlier than ever.”

Smith.
