A New York City Halloween mainstay, the Ricky's Costume Superstore pop-up shop—a seasonal chain that takes over vacant storefronts all over Manhattan every October—is making its way out of NYC for the first time. This year, Ricky's has set up a pop-up shop right in Rittenhouse—a 1428 Walnut St.— in Philadelphia, the only Halloween shop in Center City. The specialty store will remain open through the first week of November, stocking adult costumes (priced between $40 and $70), kid's costumes (between $30 and $50) and every accessory you could possibly need to create the Halloween look of your dreams. We know that sounds like hyperbole, but it's Ricky's Costume Superstore, so it's true. [Philly.com]
