With just over a month to go until the third largest event in retail, how does retail benefit from this ever growing tradition.
According to Mintel, Britons spent £310 million on Halloween in 2016, up 5% for £296 million in 2015 with 40% of Brits spending money on Halloween. 42% of those spent less than £10, a quarter spent between £11-£25, while a fifth spend between £26-£50, and an amazing 6% splashed out £85+.
Overall, around a third of Halloween purchasers spent more on Halloween products than previous years.
The value of the Halloween market is set to rise in 2017, as retailers dedicate more space in store to their seasonal ranges.
Last year the nations top five Halloween activities were;-
- Pumpkin carving
- Watching a scary film
- Dressing up/face painted
- Decorating the home/garden
- Hosting or attending a party
