Garnet Valley, PA, October 18, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Halloween is just around the corner, and across the globe, costume lovers are hunting for the best Halloween costumes out there. While many customers prefer to buy costumes at brick and mortar stores, there are plenty of advantages to shopping online. Luckily for today’s customers, the options seem to be endless. Whether they’re looking for the personal nature of a brick and mortar costume shop or the convenience and ease of shopping online, Halloween costumes
can be bought almost anywhere. How does one differentiate between shopping online and shopping in store?
Bob Schank, Chief Operating Officer of Halloween Adventure, a costume retailer boasting more than 50 brick and mortar costume shops around the east coast and a preeminent Halloween costume website, says there are advantages to both options.
Of brick and mortar stores, Schank says, “[they] are wonderful. You can go in, see the costumes up close, touch and feel them and in some cases, try them on. But most off-line costume shops
just don't have the space needed to carry the massive selection of costumes and accessories that online stores do. Halloween Adventure stores typically carry an extensive inventory of kids costumes
, adult costumes
… even Pet costumes
- far more than big box discount stores and other seasonal retailers - and yet even for us sometimes it can be a challenge to maintain stock of every costume in all sizes at all times. Unfortunately, sometimes you have to sacrifice something for the luxury of being able to try it before you buy it. However with the flexible return and exchange policy on our website you can be sure that having your satisfaction is always on our mind!”
Online stores, on the other hand, hardly ever run low on inventory – and often, items ship out the merchandise to customers the same day. Additionally, online stores are open year round, twenty-four hours a day – something that Halloween costume pop-up shops
can’t claim. Whereas choices can be limited in brick and mortar stores, online retailers keep things fully stocked, all year round.
Online shopping also gives customers a broad range of options – style, size and color are all at their beck and call; while in person shopping allows the customer to touch and feel before purchasing, but sometimes means a limited inventory if the store is busy.
Regardless of which method you choose, rest assured – HalloweenAdventure.com
will have a plethora of options waiting for you.
