The Halloween Outlet is a Halloween retailer. The store is located in Worcester, Massachusetts and is open year-round. Beginning in the early 2000s, the company ran on online store called the Fright Catalog.
The store has existed for over 30 years, and used to be made up of 30,000 square feet. In recent years it has been downgraded to 5,000 square feet. The store was also family-owned and operated for nearly 30 years, until it was sold to new ownership in 2016.
The store was originally made up of two parts, the main store and the "Kid's Boo-tique". Kids could go through the entrance to the kid's store, and then later go through the horror-themed entrances to the main store.
The horror-themed entrances at one point were rated separately. For example, there was a PG-13 entrance. These entrances to the main store were usually dark and filled with animatronics, and pipes that blew air at you.
