TYLER — Traffic is picking up this week at local Halloween stores.
Wicked Wally's costume store in Tyler says their top sellers for this year have been pirates, bikers, first responders, and Morphsuits, which are full-body suits that cover even your face. (You can still drink through them, we hear.)
Popular kids costumes are Batman and Woody and "Cars" movie themed ones.
Lady Gaga, Mad Hatter and "Jersey Shore" characters are fairly popular, too.
The store says their sales have tripled from last year's.
Wicked Wally's is owned by the Card and Party Factory on Troup Highway in Tyler.
Both stores have hired 8 to 10 more seasonal employees this year, compared to last.
The store will have extended hours this week through Halloween night.
