Whether you're trick or treating, bobbing for apples or throwing a party, there’s no excuse not to get in the swing of things and have a truly terrifying time at Halloween.

The appeal of Halloween is something retailers are becoming increasingly aware of, with more and more brands across the UK realising the potential positive impact that selling Halloween-related items can bring to their revenue.


According to Mintel, Halloween-related retail sales hit a staggering £310 million in 2016. This represents a massive growth of 35% when compared to the same stats from 2013.

There’s also evidence that people of all ages are investing in Halloween products. Mintel’s research indicated the bulk of Halloween purchases are impulsive, while older millennials are spending the most on Halloween buys. So if you think Halloween is just for kids, think again!


In fact, while the bulk of customers spend less than £25 on Halloween in 2016, one in six did exceed £50 in spend according to Mintel.

With this in mind, how can Crosswear Trading help you enhance your retail sales for Halloween 2018? We stock a wide selection of products that can help your customers enjoy the event in style, so take a look at what’s on offer.
