thursday in the hood


Not so long ago
Circuit City
occupied this building.
This specialty Halloween store
doesnt seem to be doing any better
than the previous tenant.
BOOOOO!

  2. that is so unfortunate. this is the first year I have noticed several very large temporary type Halloween shops open up here on L.I. too.
    I like how you have put these photos together.

  5. Seems like a logical progression from a Circuit City to a Halloween Shop.

  11. Call it karma or bad feng shui or just bad luck, but some locations just seem to be cursed and business after business fails despite a promising location.

    Makes a cool photo though.

  14. I think Spirit must pick the most blighted locations available to set up for the season. The one here is down in a corner of a strip mall that has never been able to support a permanent tenant (even though the other stores in the shopping center seem to do just fine). To tell you just how blighted that space is, it's been available for Spirit to use every year for... at least the last 5 or 6 years. They probably get a good deal on the rent or something. But the store seems to do a brisk business while it's open -- it just doesn't stay open for very long. Maybe that's the key.

    I didn't realize they were a national chain. Learn something new every day.

  15. We have one in Norwalk and one next door in Westport that I know of. Unfortunately (for the previous tenants bad fortune) there's a lot of empty real estate for them to rent.

  16. That's cool how you did the photo for this post, Daryl. You're into it, aren't you? Still have that awesome purple nail polish?

  17. Those stores are everywhere--any empty place. I wonder why it's not doing well. All ours seem to boom.

    Maybe it's because The Day of The Dead is SOOOO big here.
