13 Halloween Retail Display Ideas

Bust out the bats and dust off the brooms, Halloween is almost here! Decorating your store with the spooky spirit is a great way to draw customers inside and get people excited. These Halloween retail display ideas range from quick and easy to ghoulishly complicated. 

No matter what your store sells you can take part in the Halloween spirit. Just because it’s Halloween doesn’t mean you have to be scary or creepy. Your twist on Halloween decor may be upscale, fall harvest, or even cutesy. Just remember to stay true to your store’s style, and to have fun!

1) Throw A Pumpkin In There

There’s no faster way to channel the Halloween spirits than to get some pumpkins and add them to already existing displays. No room? Find some empty space on a stoop and create a little pumpkin oasis.

The best thing about decorating with pumpkins is the versatility they offer. Real, fake, orange, white, bejeweled, whatever type of pumpkin your heart wants is easily available.

2) Add A Touch Of Halloween To Manikins

If your store already has manikins, decorating for Halloween is as easy as finding a couple of props and accessorizing with them. Manikin decorating can range from simple to extremely elaborate, but they all make your store seem friendly and inviting.

7) Witchify Your Coat Rack

Witches may be full of eyes of newt and hair of dog, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have basic etiquette. By hanging up some witchy hats and brooms, you instantly create a story. Where are these witches now? What are they doing? How can I be friends with them and get them to curse my enemies?
