Still looking for the perfect costume?



You don’t need to fight the crowds at the big box stores to find a fabulous costume.


Goodwill is one of dozens of options for low-cost costumes for Halloween.

All Goodwill retail stores in San Diego have a selection of Halloween costumes and accessories, but calls to multiple stores confirmed the selection is dwindling down. If you don’t find what you are looking for, you can still score a $5 coupon off Haunted Hotel, Haunted Trails and Scream Zone admission without having to make a purchase. If your costume needs are not met at Goodwill, try some of the smaller thrift stores in San Diego.

They collect vintage and retro clothing and costumes year-round, and because of their large selection, Halloween is the best time of year for their charity to raise money. They have a wide variety of costumes and accessories, most used and some new, ranging in price from $2.99 to $29.99.
