-- 1888 PressRelease - Halloween costume prices are dropping, and smart buyers are getting timeless costumes at bargain prices for this year - and years to come. New websites list costumes that stand the test of time.
Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC - Halloween is right around the corner, and retailers all over the country want to get their Halloween costume inventory sold before everyone forgets about Halloween for another year. The Halloween buying season is short, and retailers have a tough time forecasting how much stock they should carry. They make some mistakes and for a brief period, buyers can benefit from their over-estimates.
While popular Christmas toy prices soar as Christmas draws near, Halloween costumes do the opposite - as we get closer to the day, costume prices plummet, many by 50% or even more. Savvy buyers are snapping up costumes now to take advantage of this unusual price behavior. Even if they already have a costume for this year, they know they can save money for next year by buying a costume now that will still be a big hit next year - and the year after that.
The price drop only lasts until inventory is sold. Then prices return to normal for another year.
While some Halloween costumes are only popular for one season, others have stood the test of time and are popular year after year. Character costumes from franchises like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and others are guaranteed to be top sellers for many years. Despite their popularity, even these best-selling costumes suffer from the pre-Halloween price drop phenomenon. While this may be hard on retailers and manufacturers, it is a money-saving opportunity for the smart buying public.
Two new websites from Hittin' The Web Group LLC, Boys Best Halloween Costumes and Girls Best Halloween Costumes, tell parents which costumes are the safe bets to buy to take advantage of this price break. They list the perennial best sellers that are all but guaranteed to be popular for years to come.
The websites have reviews of the costumes, tell where to find them easily online to get this once-a-year price break, and even how to get them in time for Halloween this year in case people still need a costume for Halloween 2014.
The websites listing timeless costumes for boys and girls are at http://BoysBestHalloweenCostumes.com , and http://GirlsBestHalloweenCostumes.com. They show current prices so buyers can see if this big price break on timeless costumes is still available. Halloween and Christmas take their toll on everyone's budgets, and this smart shopping tactic can help parents save money this year - and next.
