No, its not up YET! I thought that early August they had stores listed, so we could start stalking.
I do give credit that the last 2 years has been very good in keeping OPENINGS updated, in the past it was a little shaky.
But, I then went into the consignment (franchisee section) and the only states that locations are available with $70,000 and a building, are: Alabama Arkansas Florida - Panhandle Georgia Idaho Iowa Kansas Mississippi Montana Nebraska Oklahoma North Carolina North Dakota South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Wisconsin. So I would assume those are the under serviced areas?

mine is going to be between Target and Michaels on Antelope Drive...in the old Office Depot building. Fortunately, they're moving from next to Savers which would be a nightmare to get to with all the road construction this year.

I think they're putting them up towards the end of August. However, drove by an empty store just down the road from me today and found a Spirit coming soon sign in the window:D

There's usually one within a couple of miles from me, and since there still isn't anything in that spot in the plaza, I imagine it'll be there this year too. Last year they had one in a plaza near where I work too, but I don't think it did too well in that spot - it actually closed early beforeHalloween, & I've never seen a Spirit store do that before.....I'm not surprised, since it was located in a "retirement" area....

I visit between 6-8 different locations (minimum) during the "open" season, they all don't carry the same stock or have it all displayed.
Also, I'm taking inventory of where I want to travel to on 11/1. A couple of seasons ago it was mentioned that a store located near a large University, had a lot of prop inventory left over, since college students, may spend on costumes, but not buying the more expensive props! I've got a feeling the "retirement" area was a poor props and poor costume location.
