Halloween is months away but for some of us, the holiday is celebrated year round! I know I am not alone when I say I have had a countdown since last Halloween.

With that being said, many Duluthians panicked when the old Bed Bath & Beyond store that usually houses Duluth's Spirit Halloween store was filled permanently with something else.

A Boot Barn moved into the vacant store in May, leaving many to wonder where the Halloween superstore would go instead, if anywhere.

I did some sleuthing and found out that one was coming to Duluth, but where or when wasn't revealed. However, now I have an answer to both of those questions so Halloween lovers can rejoice!

Spirit Halloween Back In A Familiar Location

Once again, the popup will open up in the Miller Hill Mall. This is not the first time that the store will call the mall home. In 2022, there were two locations, with a second location in the mall. We were spoiled, for sure.

After a year off, Spirit Halloween will return to the mall in the former rue21 store. For reference, that is between Sew With Me and Beyond The Barn. It is near JCPenney as well.

In May, rue21 closed locations all across the country, including the Duluth store. I am glad that it won't be vacant for long.

When Does It Open?

Sometimes, Spirit Halloween takes a few more days than planned to open. However, according to the Miller Hill Mall's website, the new store is set to open on Monday, July 1st.

UPDATE 7/8/24: The Spirit Halloween store has not yet opened in the mall, despite the website stating it opens on July 1st. Spirit Halloween's website says that the sole Duluth location opens in September. Stay tuned!
