Costume shop open for business

Halloween just isn’t the same without a great costume. Every year, millions of people don creative, scary, and incredible getups to celebrate the October event. Unfortunately, many costumes’ high price tags put themselves out of some people’s budgets. The Boys and Girls Club of Yorkton (BGCY) is making sure everyone has something memorable to wear for Oct. 31.

BGCY is running its Halloween Swap and Shop for the third year in  a row. The shop opens today (Oct. 10) and it’s operational during the club’s regular hours.

“It’s grown every year,” said Erin Roussin, Program Manager with BGCY.

The shop hosts a wide assortment of donated costumes. Visitors can fill their bags with the most eye-catching pieces, assembling the perfect Halloween disguise.

“Anybody can come in,” Roussin said. “Come in, shop, and take what you like.”

The shop started as a way to give people a cheaper alternative to expensive costume shopping. It also has an environmental angle.

“We thought it was a great way to recycle,” Roussin said.

The shop is filled with hundreds of costumes of all styles.

“We have a really wide selection,” Roussin said.

The shop will be open until Halloween. The BGCY is located at 54 C Smith Street West.
