This is the last weekend to get a costume before Halloween weekend (Friday, Oct 28 and Saturday, Oct 29). Last-minute Halloween shoppers can head to Goodwill to find great costumes at the last minute and on a budget.
Goodwill’s Halloween Poll includes information about trends (types of costumes that are popular such as funny, minimalist, iconic/classic etc.) and an in-store survey of the most popular DIY costumes, such as witches and zombies.
October is Goodwill’s highest sales month (higher than December), as millions of people make the more than 3,200 Goodwill stores their Halloween headquarters. Here are links to more information about the poll and other info that may help you to find a fabulous Halloween costume at the last minute.

When people shop at Goodwill, they can take pride knowing that their purchases help fund Goodwill’s job placement and training programs that help people find employment. Last year, more than 312,000 people found jobs with help from Goodwill.
