Trick-or-treaters can buy their Halloween costumes nearly two months in advance this year.

Halloween pop-up stores are already open in several locations across the country, earlier than in past years.

"Spirit Halloween" operates 1,100 temporary stores in North America and some of its locations opened last month!

More opened over labor day weekend and the company plans to launch 95 percent of its stores by the end of September, according to a spokeswoman.

Analysts say halloween pop-up stores have exploded in the past few years, as consumers spend more on holiday festivities.

About 1,700 such stores opened last year, a 30 percent increase over the last four years.
