Every September... THEY POP UP! Out of nowhere. Out of the shadows.

It's SPIRIT HALLOWEEN! These stores bring excitement, and happiness. But... They also bring sadness and sorrow. We walk into the building of a store we used to love. A store we grew up in... and now it's a Spirit Halloween Store. We've seen them in the old K-Mart, the old Old Navy, the old Gen-X. They need to be stopped... before they take over Southern Utah!

Here are the TOP buildings in Southern Utah that Spirit Halloween is eyeballing for next Fall!

The old St. George Car Wash:

This one hurts... It was the BEST Car Wash in town. They did the best job. Inside, outside, you name it... They did it. And now they're gone. They sold to Quick Quack Car Wash, and Spirit Halloween is lurking... Wanting the building!

Larsen's Frostop:

Thank heavens the people over at Frostop came to their senses and reopened the local drive-in. For a minute... We all had the same fear! HERE COMES THE GRIM REAPER AND SPIRIT HALLOWEEN! We would've all sobbed together. NOT TODAY, SPIRIT HALLOWEEN!

The Old Green Iguana at The Red Lion Inn:

I LOVED Green Iguana! They made a fantastic chimi! But, they're OUT at this location... The silver lining here is their new location at The Zion Outlets will be open shortly. However... I'm NOT thrilled about Spirit Halloween taking over inside this hallowed ground. It will be interesting to smell the chlorine of the Red Lion indoor pool while shopping for your Freddy Krueger mask though!

Hash House A Go Go:

If ANY BUILDING deserves to be a Spirit Halloween store... It's THIS BUILDING! It's definitely haunted and you can't change my mind about that! No restaurant has ever survived in this building. Ruby Tuesday's, Buca di Beppo, and now Hash House A Go Go. Just burn this place to the ground, and start over! Or... Let's all sage it!

Main Street Cinema 6:

JUST LIKE HASH HOUSE A GO GO... I believe this building is haunted! I used to clean movie theaters in the middle of the night, and this one always freaked me out. Especially Theater #5. I swear, something evil happened in that auditorium. But... that could be a GREAT location for Spirit Halloween!

The old Sakura Building:

Driving by this building, you can still see the scars of what used to be...  The good news is: Sakura just moved down the street. This was always a place of fun, a place of parties, and in my case... a place of explosive diarrhea. WHAT BETTER PLACE THAN TO HAVE THE NEW SPIRIT HALLOWEEN HERE?!
