Halloween is Recession Proof

  People are still buying Halloween costumes, even in the tough economic times.  So stores like Halloween Express report seeing better business than last year.

   "Actually our sales last year they didn't go down a whole lot so we're really about the same as we were last year, actually we may be a little bit more but we didn't see a drop in sales last year as other retail places did," says store manager Theresa Davis.

   Many people like to dress up for Halloween. Hip-Wa-Zee employee Abby Young says it's nice to have a day off from real life.  And she says people still say they would spend the money, even if they couldn't really afford it.

   "Yea, I mean I don't know if I would spend as much maybe, but I would definitely go out and still spend money on one you know," Hip-Wa-Zee Customer Katie Blisset.

   People still like to have a good time, even if it is just one night of the year.
