Places to Buy Halloween Costumes in Flint and Genesee County for 2013

There are lots of places to buy Halloween costumes this year in the Flint area (especially in Burton), so we’ve listed where in Genesee County you can find a costume for 2013.


Party City

Flint / Flint Township



Party City always has a solid selection of costumes, especially if you’re just looking for something straight out of the package. They also have a decent selection of accessories.
*G-3549 Miller Road / Flint Township (click here for directions)
*3837 Lapeer Road / Flint (click here for directions)



Spirit Halloween

Burton / Flint Township



Spirit Halloween will again be located next door to Guitar Center, but this year they added a new Burton location next to VG’s and across from Courtland Center. Their selection is pretty good for more conventional costumes, but a bit pricier than online.
*Miller Road / Flint Township (click here for directions)
*Court Street / Burton (click here for directions)



Halloween City




Located in the old Pier 1 Imports for the past several years, Halloween City has always offered a great selection of costumes and accessories. If you can’t find it here or Spirit… you probably aren’t going to find it in Genesee County.
*1245 S. Center Rd / Burton (click here for directions)



Halloween Connection




Pool supply store by summer, haunted attraction/costume store by fall. Halloween Connection (aka Chemco) has gathered a vast selection of costumes and accessories over the years. You may find some interesting throwback costumes you won’t be able to find elsewhere, in addition to the more standard stuff. They also carry an interesting selection of accessories.
*4247 S. Dort Hwy. / Burton (click here for directions)



Dollar & Party

Burton – Courtland Center



The pickings are slim, but you may get lucky if you’re in search of a standard cheap costume for your kids.
*190 E Court St / Burton (click here for directions)

Burton / Grand Blanc / Everywhere



If your kids want to be something incredibly popular (like Iron Man) you may want to hit up your local Wally World first. It will probably save you a few bucks.
*You know they are



Thrift Stores



If you’re like me, you like to go DIY with your Halloween costume. Thrift stores are a great place to find clothes or things to modify for a more in-depth costume… they’re cheaper too!
Good Locations:
*Volunteers of America / Burton (click here for directions)
*Salvation Army / Flint (click here for directions)



Jo-Ann Fabrics

Burton / Flint Township



I pay a visit to this place once a year to get items and material for fabricating my costume. It may be worth looking up coupons ahead of time, as they could save you some big bucks. There are a few craft store options in the Linden/Miller Road area too. Depending on what you’re looking for, one of the others may be cheaper. Shopping around never hurts.
