Grand Junction, Colorado Costume Shop Closing in Time for Halloween
A Colorado business specializing in the sale and rental of costumes has announced they'll be closing their doors. When? They're aiming for this Halloween (2023).
If you're looking to buy a Halloween costume, or for that matter, a costume store, this is your opportunity. Everything, even the fixtures, is for sale.
Costume Shop in Colorado Hosting a Retirement Sale
After close to 30 years of service, Mad Margaret's at 807 North 1st Street in Grand Junction, Colorado will be closing their doors. Their target date: October 31, 2023. While it's unlikely they'll actually close on Halloween, they expect to be closed within the first few days of November.
Now's The Time To Stock Up
Were you planning to buy a Halloween costume? Why rent when you can own at a huge discount? You'd best put a wiggle in it because Western Colorado's premiere costume shop won't be around much longer. Margaret, and her significant other, Mr. Margaret, want to retire.
Between now and closing, everything in the store, as in everything, is for sale. I stopped by on Tuesday, September 19, 2023, to speak with the owners, and Mr. Margaret informed me that he may very well be for sale, too.
Their official webpage reads, "In celebration of our retirement, we’re excited to offer you an exclusive deal: EVERYTHING is now 25% OFF the original price! Please note that this fantastic discount does not apply to clearance items." At present, the store has an inventory of over 3,500 "unparalleled" costumes.
All the merchandise, costumes, accessories, counters, storage containers, cash registers, cleaning equipment, and possibly even "Mr. Margaret" have been priced to sell. When it comes to the store's fixtures, those items are priced as marked. Literally, you'll see a price tag on the front counter, the storage bins, etc.
Lots To Choose From at This Colorado Costume Shop
This store has been open year-round, offering far more than just Halloween costumes. As their webpage states, "Grand Junction’s year-round, locally cherished Emporium of Enchantment!"
One More BIG ticket Item
If someone were motivated to do so, they could purchase the entire store. Have you ever thought about owning a costume shop? Mr. and Mrs. Margaret did 30 years ago, and managed to make a career out of it. Mad Margaret's Facebook page reads:
We would gladly be open to entertain any reasonable authenticated offer. Ken and I would be honored, excited and so very happy if Mad Margaret’s were to continue to live on in Grand Junction. If seriously interested and financially solvent call the store and leave your name and number. I will give you a call.
