On my epic quest to find this year’s hottest Halloween tricks and treats, I headed to a local store that celebrates Halloween all year round: the Halloween Outlet in Worcester, MA.
Featured on Travel Channel’s “Most Extreme Halloween,” the Halloween Outlet is a local family business that has been on West Boylston Street for 30 years. The store sells costumes, Halloween masks, makeup, animatronics, props, and more!
Known for the gigantic jack-o-lantern ghoulishly grinning outside the front entrance, the store has downsized considerably in the last few years. The outlet even sold its iconic 1978 Cadillac hearse that haunted the streets of Worcester as part of the store’s marketing initiative.
While I was a bit sad not to be welcomed with animatronics in the elaborate haunted house that once made up the storefront, I still had a fun time checking out the makeup and masks available. Plus, the store is filled with perfect Halloween photo ops!
If you’re ever in Worcester, stop by the Halloween Outlet. You may just meet the man of your dreams at the exit.
