Prairie Village, KS, June 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Leading online retailer, Best Service Stores, has acquired the successful costume website CostumeHUB.com. With this strategic purchase, the Lenexa, Kansas-based business seeks to expand upon its extensive market footprint that includes over 30 active e-commerce sites, as well as some retail stores. The acquisition was, in part, spurred by the odd, but dramatic rise in the popularity in the wearing of costumes year-round; not just on Halloween. Events such as ComicCon, Otakon, regional Renaissance festivals, and hundreds of other gatherings inspire ordinary people to dress up as their favorite characters from fiction or history, contributing to this emerging social trend. And Best Service Stores now intends to leverage its extensive online retail experience, skilled staff, and 200,000 square feet of warehouse space located in America’s heartland, to become a major player in the space.
Brad Likens, President of Best Service Stores, stated: “This years blockbuster hits have given CostumeHub.com plenty of great costume options for both children and adults to enjoy. With movies such as Avatar, Iron Man 2, Shrek 4 and Harry Potter, CostumeHub.com has invested in a plentiful selection of both hero and villain costumes. It doesn’t stop at licensed costumes - our selection of classic costumes has you traveling back in time to the 70’s, 60’s, 50’s, 20’s, the Civil War or ancient Rome or Greece.”
