It happens every year. Many of us wait until the last minute to go shopping before birthdays and holidays, including Halloween.
13 Action News decided to head out on Monday afternoon and see if it is still possible to stock up on candy and buy a Halloween costume.
Our first stop was Walmart. They still had plenty of candy but not very many costumes.
We also stopped at a local Target, which was fully stocked with 3 packs of assorted candy for $8.
The Walgreens we checked out had absolutely no costumes left. But, they were offering a buy one, get one free deal on candy.
Our last stop was Black Cat Costumes on Rainbow Boulevard. We found plenty of costumes there and plenty of shoppers.
That is also where we ran into Laura Weidenfeld. She told us that she plans on being a little more pro-active next year and get her shopping done earlier.
