Suiting up for Halloween

There’s a new “fright shop” in town. Halloween is less than a week away and community members can find a wide variety of costumes, masks and all types of accessories in one convenient location. For the second year, Costumes to Suit Your Fancy is located in the old Griffith Motors building at 523 E. Third Street. The temporary business not only makes Halloween shopping more convenient, but provides more costuming options.
