They’ve already opened over 950 locations and have hundreds more to come this season for their 40th anniversary. This year, they bring back a fresh new twist on its beloved “Spirit Hallows” theme with cemetery-inspired store designs that fans can explore.

Steven Silverstein, Spirit Halloween CEO had this to say:

“We’ve seen Halloween grow from a single day of excitement into a season-long celebration, with so many enthusiasts showcasing their love for Halloween all year long, As we open doors for our landmark 40th season this year, we look forward to sharing our biggest season yet. However you celebrate this season, we have everything Halloween fans need, from the classics to the hottest new trends.”

As part of their celebration of 40 years of Spirit, they’re giving 40 lucky Instagram followers a chance to make their Halloween dreams, or nightmares, come true by winning a $1000 gift card during its $40,000 giveaway weekend running Friday, September 22 through Monday, September 25.
