A Halloween pop-up shop has mysteriously appeared at intu Merry Hill to frighten and delight shoppers this autumn with a store brimming full of spooky Halloween surprises.

Halloween House has one of the largest collections of Halloween merchandise in the UK and includes costumes, masks, props and trick or treat items. The store also has a ghoulish array of decorations, props and make-up.

Props include lifesize rattling coffins, cackling witches with glow in the dark eyes as well as masks of horror movie classics including Pennywise the Clown and Freddy Kruger.

The pop-up store opened its very first shop in Wolverhampton last year, with reality TV programme The Only Way is Essex even approaching The Halloween House to supply props for their Halloween special.

Robert Pickersgill, marketing manager at intu Merry Hill, said: “Halloween is a really fun time and we have plenty of events and surprises coming up for shoppers to look forward to, including a roster of Christmas events for the festive period.”

James Openshaw, team member at Halloween House, said “We jumped at the chance to be able to bring Halloween to intu Merry Hill this year with our pop-up shop. It’s obviously our favourite time of the year and we’re thrilled to be able to offer intu Merry Hill shoppers one of the widest ranges of Halloween products in the UK. Whether it’s a children’s Halloween party, trick or treating in the neighbourhood or a uni fancy dress night, we have everything for every event.”

“We are all about bringing the authentic Halloween experience to customers, who not only visit our shops to buy Halloween products but also visit for the spooktastic experience they encounter as soon as they enter. The seven-foot prowling, howling werewolf and the sinister, undead clown, who wants to play hide and seek, will be sure to greet you at the door.

The Halloween House team will be back in November at the centre, with a Christmas pop-up shop packed full of treats to celebrate, so lovers of all things festive should stay tuned for more.
