Spirit Halloween plans grand opening of flagship store in Egg Harbor

Spirit Halloween Celebrates Halfway to Halloween with Axe-clusive Giveaway to Lizzie Borden House

There are only six months until Halloween, and Halloween’s most iconic retailer, Spirit Halloween, unveiled the date for its highly anticipated grand opening of its flagship store in Egg Harbor Township.

Halloween enthusiasts dying to step foot in Spirit Halloween should mark their calendars for Aug. 1 — it’s a day where thousands of superfans will gather to enjoy exclusive early reveals, games, treats, themed photo ops and memories that will haunt them forever.

As a way to kick off the weeklong celebration, for its first scare of the year, the brand is offering fans the chance to win a stay in one of the nation’s most haunted houses — the notorious Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, Massachusetts. In collaboration with U.S. Ghost Adventures, Spirit Halloween will give one lucky winner and up to 12 members of their coven a private stay in the horror-filled house.

“We are delighted to work with Spirit Halloween to roll out the red carpet and offer the public a chance to win a one-of-a-kind experience at the infamous Lizzie Borden House, which also includes additional haunted experiences and merchandise,” Lance Zaal, founder and president of U.S. Ghost Adventures, said.

With the house all to themselves (not including ghostly residents, of course), the winning group will enjoy all the makings of a haunting holiday, including:

  • An exclusive guided house tour, including insider insight around the murder, the trial and commonly reported hauntings;
  • A late-night ghost tour, complete with professional ghost-hunting gear;
  • A private breakfast in the Borden family dining room;
  • A ghost hunting starter kit with two pieces of Ghost Daddy Ghost Hunting Gear and a lesson for two at U.S. Ghost Adventures’ Ghost Hunting Course;
  • The ultimate Lizzie Borden gift package, featuring an official hatchet, the Lizzie Borden board game, Lily the Haunted Doll and America’s Most Haunted Volume II;
  • Winner’s choice of a Ghost Tour experience in Salem, Massachusetts, or a True Crime experience in Boston for two.

“Our Halfway to Halloween celebration provides fans an exhilarating taste of what’s to come this fall and empowers them to start planning for their favorite season as early as they please,” Steven Silverstein, CEO of Spirit Halloween, said. “We have cultivated an incredible following of enthusiasts who embody the Halloween lifestyle, and we’re thrilled to bring the fun back to life.”
