Now popping up in vacant big-box spaces: Halloween stores

With retail vacancies 15,000 square feet (sf) and higher fluctuating again amid a rise in national bankruptcies and location rollbacks, one niche industry is thriving: temporary Halloween stores.

Cushman & Wakefield is tracking at least 18 short-term/seasonal
Halloween stores in the Twin Cities. Notably, three of them are in former Sears stores, two are in vacant Herberger’s locations and more are in former Best Buys and Toys ‘R’ Us buildings.
