A Spirit halloween store opened in Santa Maria on Thursday. The store is located at the old Pier One store on Betteravia Road.
Despite the pandemic, staff at Spirit hope people have the halloween cheer of decorating and celebrating the holiday.
Fifty people are being allowed into the store at a time. Customers are asked to wear masks, social distance and hand sanitizer is being offered at the door. Dressing rooms are not open.
"A lot of people are still coming in buying a lot of the home decor stuff. People love decorating their house and that's the spirit of halloween, not just costumes and stuff, providing that outdoor decoration and then that indoor decoration just for people to get that vibe of halloween," said store manager, Chris Rustrian.
Rustrian says the store is still hiring if anyone is looking for a job.
Spirit operates more than 1,400 locations across the country, commonly in recently closed large retail stores.
