Brick & mortar stores have been cutting back for years. Remember when Walmart would sell blow molds, tons of props, tons of decor, all in-store? I do. Now most of their stuff is online.
Some stores would skip Halloween all together if they could, but then there's some like HomeGoods that have stepped in where the others leave off.
Halloween in-store, like everything else, won't go away completely, but it will change & keep changing. I also think that the seasonal stores will continue...
