Eau Claire (WQOW) — The National Retail Federation (NRF) is predicting Americans to spend $9 billion on Halloween this year. How much are you planning to spend?

Eau Claire’s Halloween Express has been open for just over a month now, and staff told News 18 they’ve seen a steady flow of customers looking for a wide variety of all things Halloween.

The NRF also expects consumers to spend nearly $4 billion on costumes alone, something Halloween Express staff said they get the most questions about.

“We help build on it because we might not have exactly what they’re looking for, but we’ll have something similar or something that can work for it,” said store employee Morgan Hammond.

Hammond also told News 18 Halloween Express expects a rush of last minute shoppers in the next week, and even more as we get closer to Halloween.
