Spookshop Party & Costume, which in the past 12 years was open just for Halloween, has chosen a permanent Bellingham storefront at 4176 Meridian St. next to Bellingham Beauty School.
“We’ve been wanting to do this for years, but it wasn’t until now that the right location was available,” said owner James Burke in a statement.
With enough room to house a retail store and manufacturing, SpookShop’s new home will offer party supplies and wedding accessories along with holiday costumes.
“Historically, we get a lot of Canadian traffic,” Burke said. “In the past it’s been mostly young ladies, groups of them piled into cars to come down and shop for sexy costumes. With the space to expand, we expect to see a more broad customer base from Canada, as well as locally.”
SpookShop Party & Costume is set to open in late September. For more information, call (360) 752-1668 or visit www.spookshop.com.
