SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - Halloween sales are up this year compared to last.
If you are looking be a dashing vampire or a cool cat for Halloween, everything you need is at the Bechtle Avenue Goodwill.
Enon resident, Shawna Dunwiddie, shops at the Goodwill for supplies to make her costume every year.
"It makes me feel great because you go to these other Halloween stores and you're paying $50 $60 for a costume which in my opinion is ridiculous," said Dunwiddie.
Goodwill spokesperson Kim Bramlage said many share Dunwiddie's opinion. As Goodwill's spokesperson, she has seen sales up nearly 10% this October compared to last year due to people looking to save a buck on their Halloween looks and support a good cause.
"A lot of people don't know when they shop in our Goodwill stores they're helping our people in the community," Bramlage said.
Bramlage said 86 cents of each dollar made at their stores goes to programs and services for people with disabilities, the elderly and the homeless here in the Miami Valley.
