Beware when shopping this Halloween | Better Business Bureau

October 27, 2013 · 4:06 PM

According to the National Retail Federation, the average American plans to spend around 80 dollars on Halloween costumes and products in 2013. Screaming deals are everywhere, but Better Business Bureau warns consumers to be careful when shopping at pop-up retail stores and online “bootiques.”

“Time-sensitive purchases can cause big problems for shoppers,” says Robert W.G. Andrew, CEO of BBB serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington. “And since many of these stores close shortly after the holiday, gathering as much information [about vendors] as possible can prevent issues down the road.”

Don’t be haunted by low-quality products and spooky service:
