CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - With Halloween just a few days away, people are still in search of costumes. One Halloween store in Spirit Halloween in Cheyenne, faced uncertainty ahead of this holiday but has so far thrived in revenue. According to store manager, Jennifer Turpin, this is the first year that Spirit Halloween in Cheyenne has made their sales goal, in which all proceeds will go to the Denver Children’s Hospital.

“We just didn’t know that sales were going to be as good, we just didn’t know if people were going to try and stay home, if they still were having Halloween parties,” Turpin said. “Cheyenne has really come out and it still sounds like Halloween is still happening.”

For Spirit Halloween in Cheyenne, there was a little skepticism heading into the holiday, due to restrictions on trick or treating and other gatherings. However, Spirit kept its spirits high, knowing that Halloween was still going to happen, amid the pandemic.

“We weren’t sure how people were going to react,” Turpin said. “I know a lot of people are upset with covid and the CDC saying they don’t want trunk or treating, they don’t think you should be out trick or treating, but this year I think it proves that everybody wants to be out.”

Spirit Halloween in Cheyenne will be open until November 2, 2020.
