Halloween costume store to haunt Tysons’ former Lord & Taylor

(Updated at 4:40 p.m.) A different kind of ghost will soon take up residence in the former Lord & Taylor at Tysons Corner Center.

A Spirit Halloween pop-up will move into the store’s lower level, mall spokesperson Maurisa Potts confirmed to FFXnow, stating that a specific opening date is still being worked out.

According to Spirit Halloween Communications Director Nikki Balles, the location at 7950 Tysons Corner Center is slated to open early next week, giving trick-or-treaters plenty of time to pick out the spookiest evening wear and decor.

An exact opening date is expected to be announced soon.

In business for more than 38 years, Spirit Halloween boasts over 1,400 locations annually, making it the biggest Halloween retailer in the U.S., according to its website.

A Bailey’s Crossroads store has already opened, and one in Fair Lakes Shopping Center’s former Saks off 5th will open at 11 a.m. today (Thursday). A pop-up is also coming soon to the former Tuesday Morning in Centreville.

Balles says the Tysons location was identified by the company’s real estate team, which “works year-round to identify and lock in the best locations available.”

Lord & Taylor departed Tysons Corner Center in January 2020, and since then, it has intermittently been used as a mass COVID-19 vaccination site until the Virginia Department of Health shut down those operations in March.

Perhaps unbeknownst to Spirit Halloween’s real estate team, the vacated store has also been a hub for paranormal activity, according to local medium Janie Daum, who told FFXnow last October that she has investigated some uncanny reports tied to the women’s restrooms.

Whether or not the space is actually haunted, Balles says customers can expect plenty of surprises from Spirit Halloween this fall, including new merchandise from pop culture favorites like “Ted Lasso,” “Squid Game” and “Bluey.”

“We expect this to be another killer year thanks to our expansive collection new and returning costumes, décor and accessories, along with our industry leading line of animatronics,” Balles said. “The strength of the brand and superfans enables Spirit Halloween to continue expanding our retail footprint, increasing store count and jobs each year.”
