Making Customers Ghoulish for Halloween

03 April, 2013

Halloween at Cromer’s was quite an experience years ago. We were the only place in town where you could purchase costumes, masks and make up! The week prior to Halloween was always an exciting one with most people waiting until the last minute to purchase their costumes. We would gladly help our customers with ideas on what to put together for an outfit. USC students would fill the store on Halloween day and most of our sales staff would still be at the store long past closing helping those young people make their purchases. Though we no longer sell those items, we still pride ourselves in helping our customers with ideas for gift giving, events, and concession sales.
