Giant pop-up Halloween stores are back. Nature is healing. 🎃

When I was riding the bus down Vancouver’s West Broadway mid-August, it was oddly reassuring to catch sight of the familiar black and orange banner in the shell of a former Mountain Equipment Co-op location. Like those videos from the spring of animals returning to human spaces, nature was healing. The chain operates over 1,300 seasonal locations in previously empty retail spaces across Canada and the U.S. There wereearlier in the summer that the economic downturn had claimed Spirit Halloween.

“Dear Halloween Fans, We heard you’re crushed, disheartened, and downright sad. Well, don’t worry, the rumors aren’t true. WE ARE BACK & WE GOT THIS COVERED,” the statement read alongside an image of someone in a pandemic response costume. “It’s been a challenging year, but we promise to keep the Halloween spirit alive. Come early, come often and help make this year the #BestHalloweenEver.”And like the changing of the tides, locations began appearing as early as the first week in August. Many people on social media pointed out that the economic downturn and subsequent closure of many retail businesses is a perfect situation for the chain notorious for filling in empty space in malls across Canada and the U.S.

Coronavirus was created by Spirit Halloween stores so a bunch of businesses would go under and they could move into the vacant buildings this fall

but... will they be selling cloth scary masks?
