Every year I say it’s one of the most amazing feats in the entire retailing business: Spirit Halloween opens 1,400 stores in just a few weeks and operates them for two or three months and then closes them up until the next year. Think about it: big chains open 50 or 60 stores a year, dollar stores may get up to a 800 or 1,000 new doors a year and even pop-up operations can move in with large temporary operations. But Spirit, which is owned by Spencer Gifts, is in a class by itself. From site selection to staffing to stocking the shelves it’s a remarkable achievement. It takes Smart to a whole new level.
