In contrast to my recent disappointing visit to Tesco in search of Halloween stuff, Co-Op was quite excellent!
Okay, so it was never going to be as impressive as Asda (I mean, who could be) but for a small shop, they have really made an effort this year and I hope that it pays off for them.
I calmly walked along the highstreet on my way to buy some groceries, and was overjoyed to see paper bats adorning the windows of my usually quiet and conservatively decorated Co-Op store.
Inside were two (yes two) shelf ends dedicated to Halloween. One concentrating more on sweets and treats and the other with costumes, toys and decorations. More than enough to accomodate your standard Halloween celebration.
Some of the masks were particularly good with one silver skull mask looking particularly menacing. I also had great fun squeezing a squishy skull ball toy to make the eyes swell. I love those squishy toys. 🙂
I also loved the special Halloween ‘Lucky Bags’ that they had on sale. These brightly coloured bags of fun are the perfect for kids and I bought a bunch of them for our guests this year. At only £1 each, they’re great value and sure to go down well.
Make sure that you check out your local Co-Op for any bits and pieces that you might be after. You may be surprised!
