Last year was the first time Spirit ventured into Canada (of course it had to be in the Toronto area)...anyways, I spoke with their head office and learned that there will be 12 new stores opening up in Canada!!!

I don't know where they all will be, I am sure they will be posted on their site later on.

Best news of all: VANCOUVER, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, WILL HAVE A SPIRIT STORE!!!!!!...I was told it will be open by Labour Day.

You Americans don't know how lucky you had it for all these years (we can't even order online as they never shipped here, like we are some third world country)! This has gotta be the best news I have heard, Halloween related!

:)

That is WONDERFUL news for all of the Canadians!

I love going to their stores just to soak up the atmosphere - it's really addicting!

Good for you, bad for your wallet!;)

Actually Vancouver has had a brutal heat wave for the last 2 weeks..been 35-39 celcius during the days...i much rather prefer rain over this...u cant sleep without air conditioning! And i hate sweating so much!

Of all the mass Halloween US stores, can someone tell me if my excitement is warranted? Is Spirit the best of them all or are there others that are better?h

I looked into applying at a spirit store once, I did my usual sticking around for a long while in the store and see how the staff are treated by the management and whatnot.

I have never seen a group of more unhappy staff ever :(

Keep your heads up Canadians! If you bug them(Spirit), they will come! Send letters and emails to the corporate office as they would not turn down possible good business if they have a big enough response from supporters. Best of luck to you all!

Actually, Spirit has been in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) for about 2 years now or maybe even more. I have shopped there every year. If you know where to look, Toronto actually has quite a few stores that deal in Halloween merchandise year round. Congrats on getting a Spirit in the Vancouver area!

I just got my confirmation that I will be a store manager for Halloween City (formerly Halloween USA). I was an assistant last year. Whether the employees are happy or not is all dependent upon the manager and who they hire. I hope to have a happy crew!

Spirit- NOT RECOMMENDED

I`ve been to spirit a couple times and I have to admit that it`s selection of props and other decorations and such for Halloween is lacking.
Party Supply Depot, on Doncaster on the other hand has a great variety of Halloween props, accessories, costumes, tableware.. etc, all at a very affordable price.
