Flooding impacted seasonal Halloween sales

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Halloween is less than two weeks away.

While it’s supposed to be a fun month of tricks and treats, Hurricane Matthew’s deadly and devastating aftermath put the holiday on the back-burner for many communities across the East.

From a business standpoint, seasonal stores like Halloween Express in Greenville felt the impact too.

Owner Lisa Cartwright is mindful of those impacted by flooding and hopes many can use Halloween as an escape.

“Now that the water is starting to get back down and go back to normal,” said Cartwright. “I feel like people are ready to get out and have some fun.”

Cartwright expects business to pick up this weekend with ECU students back in town and more families returning to their regular routines.
