Remember the Bed Bath and Beyond in Mission Valley, the Tuesday Morning in Pacific Beach, or the Macy’s at Parkway Plaza?

They’re all gone, but still here in spirit, because they’ve been transformed into Spirit Halloween stores. This year, the spooky shop has 17 seasonal locations in San Diego County.
