THE BRONX - Last-minute shoppers flocked to costume shops Friday to find Halloween costumes.

Costume store owners say many costumes have already sold out, but there are some good last-minute deals still available.

Employees say there have been a steady stream of shoppers at the Spirit Halloween store on East Gun Hill Road.

They told News 12 that shoppers should ask for assistance because they may have ideas on how they can assemble a perfect Halloween costume.

Employees also say that 50 percent of their business stems from the last four days before the holiday.

Spirit Halloween will stay open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday. Other costume shops will stay open later for the Halloween rush.
